Yeah, I've wondered that same thing several times now. Gotta be a typo, yes?

Yes, that page isn't very clear - I was trying to set limits..

In short - as it wasn't possible to set the limits, it's the creators point of view: If you think it's blue, then it's blue. ^^'

I'd be delighted if you tried! :D

Any version : 2R1O2G   -   1R2O1Y1G   -   1Y2B2P   -   5B   -   1O1R1P1B1G   -   Y/B
the letters are the initial of the color (B=blue, R= red...)
the last one Y/B means transition, palettes going from yellow to blue / blue to yellow as you like.

Or maybe you already have some that could fit? Old palettes are welcome too!

You're so funny with your sidebar palette of colors to avoid. Though I know what you mean about getting into a rut with colors. I went for a very long time feeling like anything new I made looked like everything I'd made before. Anywho, I love what you've done here. It's so original and captivating, and it's definitely set to the beat of a different drummer. Kinda reminds me of you and your uniqueness!! :-)

Oooh I love the thought of avoiding certain type of colours. I remember when you complimented me on my palettes....Something about the colours not being too saturated. It was indeed the character of my palettes.

So, the very next day I decided to make palettes that have that saturated character. It helps a lot to make myself aware of things that I'm not used to doing. It's fun!

Hey! That could be an RC on itself. A reverse RC. 'Use this random colour...BUT AVOID combining it with anything yellow' or whatever. haha!
Thank you! =)

I think avoiding is very personal.. and I don't think it's always a good thing: Many famous artist repeat themselves, makes them recognisable, and stands out...

Imagine Rothko saying 'Oh, I've already done squares...'
or Giacometti: 'I'm going to avoid making thin men'. o.O??

But we could try as experiment. - it could even be an extension of the IFPS experiment:

IFSP is a challenge with all the colours set :
like this one - this one is make a palette using:
1 Yellow
2 Blues
2 Purples

One of the problems which appeared very quickly is:
What are the limits of a color? When exactly does red become orange? I tried setting limits but it's so different depending for each combination, I ended setting the limits to the creators personal point of view.

Wanna try IFPS? :)

PS: the experiment I liked the most is 'morphing palettes, idea by Wist. It's quit big to do, but interesting.

Why are these colors to avoid?

Because I have many purple-brown/gold - black - It's generally the first thing that comes out!
I tend to repeat myself... I'd like to do something else.
Thought maybe some who've seen my past palettes muct know this. ^^'

and hey! Thanks for the love! =)


I was just thinking the same thing about myself! I always lean towards contrasting palettes and palettes with lots of dark colors. Not even going to mention all the palettes I've mindlessly toss neon green into. x_x

Wonder if many think something similar...

Maybe, if you created tonnes of similar palettes, there'd be one in the lot which will be 'perfect' (which is a personal point of view of course) - or that you get real good at it... or so I thought.

I think 'instinctive' palettes are the best - better not think too much. I find that very hard to do...

When I said avoid - it also includes all the ones I didn't save! If I did, I'd have maybe 10x more! I thought I didn't have any color preferences before.. o.O

Can I see an example of your 'typical' palette? ... or maybe it's still too early to clearly say?
