You know, I've been thinking hard how to top my last few blends, and I have some great ideas, but it occurs to me I've been thinking too hard. I want to make some simple ones just to remind myself how pretty. I'm going to make a couple sampled from the same picture source while I'm doing my laundry.
First palette left to right diagonal:
ReconditeSamples
Second palette, different colors from the outside edges. Third palette, just different colors from the blend.

That really is a beautiful one, bezzalopoly. Deserves some extra staring. Hey, it's only 9 blocks wide! interesting.

Breeding Block Blends:
Here is today's experiment. I started by making a block blend with my RC palette.
Picked the colors other than the blended brown, because I figured brown would show up in the red+dark cross.

Then I blended the colors of the corners with this other Block Blend, using the Meyer Color Blender, as in the Palette Blend Game, and made a new Block Blend with the results (I think I got the red corner wrong... the Meyer blender glitches sometimes. When I checked with pourpre.com, I got a different color. But hey, it's close...):

Some neutral colors from this last Block (a 4 color diagonal), and the corner blue, which I liked.

Okay, here's a different one... these are all real palettes, although the block blend image is fake (was faster to make that way). It's not a block blend in the strict sense, just a progression.
I took the top palette, which is a blend of two palettes, and bred with another palette to make palette2 of this block. I blended palette 2 with another similar palette to make palette 3, etc. So each row is the result of blending a different palette with the row before.

I worry about this myself, because I've used a couple of color palettes made by others with credit for "color palette challenges" on Tumblr. I always checked before I used them, I never charged money for them, and I haven't used anyone elses' patterns. Do I need to stop, or is everything Kosher?
