I know this is an early spring picture but it’s so beautiful I couldn’t resist using it for the June colour palette, particularly as one or two people thought the April picture was rather dull for a Spring palette.
In March, three colleagues and I were lucky enough to teach a couple of workshops in The Netherlands and between workshops we went to Delft. These vivid tulips and anemones were in a flower shop we passed and we couldn’t resist buying them.
What I love about this picture is the contrast in colours and the rich depth. The anemone was slightly more purple than is shown here, but even then it’s really gorgeous.
So what would I do with these colours? Maybe a stipe pattern for a rug or set of place mats and table runner.
How would you use these colours?
