Anonyme asked: so the first thing that I always notice in your art is that your colors/palettes are very vibrant and unique and just overall super beautiful! I'm actually struggling getting my colors not to look so muddy and trying to get a grasp on color theory. how does your coloring process usually go about and do you have any tips? sorry if that's kinda a loaded question but even if you don't have an answer I appreciate it anyways! :)
I’m ngl I have a pretty poor sense of colour theory myself and basically all my knowledge of it comes from a grade 9 art class I took once and some online tutorials ;; (tbh I always recommend checking out purplekecleon’s “how i see color” tutorial since it gives a pretty good run down explaining things like values and colour harmony, as well as other stuff. Its pretty text heavy but gives some good advice)
Besides that though my go to advice will always be to observe artists you admire! look at their art and try and figure out how they make certain colours work, and then try and apply it to your own! In terms of just understanding colour better too i totally suggest landscape/environment type paintings as practice (from photos or irl, doesn’t matter. just make sure the photo you’re referencing isn’t using filters for some obvious reasons) they’re what i’ve been doing lately and it’s helped a lot!
it’s totally just hit and miss, you really can’t go wrong. And as for my OWN colouring progress then dang heres a run down how this stuff goes:
