Mixing Colour Outside Your Palette Part Two

Yesterday we talked about using repetition to help colours go together when bringing in colours outside of your palette, by using the dimensions of colour (undertone, value and intensity). My preference is still to keep to the colours in your specific palette to show you to your best advantage, but if you feel like mixing it up, here’s another way to ‘break the rules’.

In yesterday’s post we showed an example where we repeated the intensity of the colour to help the mix work together. Today we’ve got an example of repeating the value of the colour (in this case, light) to create the look.
