A Little Color Theory

I am working on some color palates for a client of mine here in Northern Michigan and so I pulled some of my personal photos from my travels to some of the most gorgeous places here. But while working in Illustrator I was completely shocked by the colors I was coming up with in these photos. It just hit me I live in a place that has some of the most beautiful color palettes an artist could ask for. How can you not live with all this beauty around you and not be inspired. So I had to share a screenshot of my computer. Currently these are all the colors I have pulled from the photos. 


From Mackinaw Island, Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Traverse City, and Suttons Bay…Lake Michigan is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in all my life. It changes daily and it continually takes my breath away. I feel extremely blessed to wake up to that every morning! 


Check the comparison below. The top photo is out at Sleeping Bear Dunes in Northern Michigan and the other is from my trip to Maui, Hawaii in July only 5 days later. Yes, this why summer needs to come! I live in a hidden paradise!
