For this exercise, I wanted to create a step by step along with shots of the color picker so you can understand how these colors were chosen. So when I choose my colors for “shifting” I generally follow the same pattern as shown in the full post.
- I will “bend” my shadow colors toward cool colors, increase the saturation, and lower the brightness.
- I will “bend” my light colors toward warm colors, decrease the saturation, and raise the brightness.
This is a quick way to choose colors without relying on black and white to create forms. It’s a good tip but one that you don’t have to use all the time. Instead, experiment with this to create new color palettes and combinations to create your own swatch palette from!
