Time to pat some backs!! I'm hoping that this thread will flourish, and become a lovefest of colour sharing.

The concept is simple. Look up the palettes/patterns/colours of the most recent poster (aka, the one above you!) and post any of their work that you love, and describe why you love it.

Let's share some colourlove!


Awww, what a sweet idea! I'm always up for a love-fest :D

I love this one:


Why? Well just look at it!! :D

I think it's lovely. The subject matter isn't quite as enjoyable lol..I've had a couple of bad camp experiences in my time LOL, all rainy and icky and too cold to swim, who loves that? But it's a fun inspiration, and brings up happy summer camp memories :)

But the palette itself is just stunning. I love how the colours are muted but still quite bold. And that blue-y grey at the end is fantastic. I wouldn't have thought to put that there, but it's a great idea! It works wonderfully, and really finishes the whole thing off right.

Beautiful job :D


it was really hard to pick but...


totally stuck out to me. it's weird, though, since i'm usually a fan of gradients.

i'm not exactly sure why i like it so much but i mean, come on, you can't call it anything less than beautiful. the colors go together so well and the widths are wonderful. all i can say is "i wish i would have though of that."


great idea of a thread! :)

ok my pick...

i instantly loved this because of the soft yellows and the name... i thought the name is totally right! and being a daydreamer prectically all the time hehe i just had to love it! i think it shows how melancholy and happiness and all kinds of thoughts blend on our daydreamer heads




Tough choice, but this grabbed me today. It's absolute Melbourne winter crap outside, its been drizzling all day, & I've got three dogs waiting for walkies. Looking at this reminded me of the day, and that I have a fireplace and a couple of good bottles of red available, so I'm about to light a fire and then lie on the couch with a good book and a drink.

I like how the bright green next to the rusty orange buzzes, then the dusty colours set off that pattern more subtly. The earth tones are pleasant, but have a great twist. Almost retro, this palette brings out harmonies between brights and neutrals.

Lovely palette, Alex



so hard to decide! wow lovely colors. I love the widths and the alternating colors, it really makes this pop. Sort of like how the dark blue is like a background for the reds to sit on! I love seeing colourlovers who explore widths and creating different depths and feels. Lulu 05 has alot of beautiful stuff though. <3 I found a new lover to watch! :)



I love how fresh and clean this feels. And of course the name is super fun! It really jumped off the page for me!



I love these soft, muted colors so much. I love the strength of the purples, and the dreaminess of the greens. Sadness perhaps, but paired with hope.



the name first caught my attention - virginia was a very interesting woman (i've read some of her books and liked them). i also associate her with blueish shades and this palette has nice blues with a little greyish tone and the light green that makes it special. and the widths are great.


I am SO EXCITED that I caught this thread at ventilatorblues!! It took me a while, but I finally settled on this palette
Here is why:
(1) All of her palettes have amazing, evocative, usually music-inspired names - and this is one of the best
(2) She has a fantastic sense for how to use contrasting colors
(3) Her palettes always have something a little unexpected, something that I wouldn't think of myself - like "strawberry," the bold pink here. The unexpected touches ALWAYS work beautifully.



I love the soft warm colours in this palette - the way it blends is just perfect! It also reminds me of being at the beach on a warm day!!



Love how the colours blend here and widths are perfect, plus I love cats... (also cheshire cats!) :)



I love the soft lavenders and the way the thin, pinky-mauve center stripe gives the palette depth.



Oh so lovely... I love the dark, inky grey-blues, and I love how 'uncertainty' pops out like a Van Gogh night sky. Plus, I absolutely love morphs, and I think bunigrl33's done a beautiful job with this one!



I really like palettes that utilize colours that seem too muted to be striking at first glance, and then deftly sews them together into a portrait where each colour shines its hue on the other. It's like watching dusty prism reflections on a wall . . . I could just look at it all day.



first of all, i adore the name! yay hobos :D
also, the oranges/red/yellows strike a lovely chord with the navy and light blue, and this palette is so bright and happy

it's a yay palette :)

I love everything about this palette. The widths are perfect, and all of the colors melt into each other. I also love how you name all of your colors to go along with the title of your palette. Makes me want to indulge a little right now <3



wow.. it's hard to choose! everything is so amazing! i guess i'd have to pick this as my favorite, though. love!

Hey, lovely people, let me ask you a question: do you ever experience the CL+ toolbar button fading out and saying Not connected for prolonged periods of time while you can browse COLOURlovers without any issues?

1. I don't care whether you support my campaign or not. Besides, thoughts of witch hunts, branding irons, welts, etc. are perverse, those pictures all come from you, I deny them. My ultimate rebuke, after a lot of explaining, and encouragement, tells someone I can't respect their actions because they violate my code of honor, after which I ignore them until they shape up. I don't go any further. So it's best you don't participate in the proposed action. If that is the way you think, I certainly would never hire you for faculty in a private school.

2. Damages in euros etc. I am not discussing. I'm talking about Art. Best practices, and originality. If someone doesn't care about those after mild and mannered discussion, when you confront them with date stamped proof of their actions, then I cannot further respect them as an artist. I'm free to speak my mind about that. That doesn't mean I want them to quit the site or go jump off a bridge, certainly not hang them. That just means I know how they behave going forward, and I'm free to form an opinion about them. People can form whatever opinion about me in return, based on my art, actions and deeds. I've worked hard to become an asset to this site. I like to think I have earned respect because of it. But I never count on it.

3. I don't care whether you could follow every minute of this discussion for two weeks. I don't care that my discussion about and endorsement of appropriate shame appears in a forum that appears around the world. That's what public forums are for. People should be able to speak their minds, right or wrong, and be able to freely make mistakes, or conversely, excellent points. When a topic has had no action for two weeks, you should understand it's a dead topic. If you revive it, you beat a dead horse, or you're trying to begin a new horse beating. I bet you didn't even look at the date. That is on you.

4. You are correct that memories attatched to shaming are carried for a long time, that is my point. "If my mother had caught me doing such a thing, she would have tanned my behind." "My old teacher would have had a heart attack." "My grandparents would be rolling in their graves." "My sister would have been so disappointed in me," etc. Those are generally good lessons, that we have internalized, admitted to, and grown past. Administered to us by people who care.
