Different color tonalities, Master Painter’s Palettes
Putting together a great color palette for your design work can be one of the most challenging aspects of any project. And many times, color palettes are built from some source of inspiration. So why not be inspired by some of history’s greatest master artists?
Colour Lovers has a lot of great tools including the ability to create color palettes auto-magically from pics you find around the web. It’s a great way to find inspiration when building your palette.
Of course, computer algorithms are not perfect; they miss key accent colors frequently and make questionable decisions on extracting the dominant tones. BUT, this is an exercise in inspiration, so there’s a certain advantage to these imperfections.
Long story short … here are 35 color pallets extracted from the work of some amazing painters with relative ease thanks to the Colour Lovers tools:
William Adolphe Bouguereau
Leonardo Da Vinci
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni
