Four Nature Color Schemes to Inspire You
Color Schemes from Nature: Set 2
Earlier this month I posted the first set of color palettes for inspiration, and today I have a brand-new nature color schemes set for you! Once again I am featuring beautiful photography from the talented Liz Masoner. Be sure to check out the links where you can purchase prints and products of her nature photography.
Color Inspiration from the Nature Photography of Liz Masoner
George and Gracie
It’s no secret I like bright colors and bold color combinations, but I know that is not to everyone’s taste, so I have included a couple of subtle and muted color schemes in this second collection. These elegant and graceful swans give us a neutral-tone color scheme of tans and grays.
Spring in Miniature
These tiny and delicate spring flowers give us a color scheme of pale yellows and greens contrasted with the bright yellow of the stamens and the darker greens of the stems and leaves.
Puppies! Who can resist puppies? Not me, that’s for sure. This adorable pile of sleeping Labrador pups gives us a calm and restful color scheme of neutrals including cream, toffee, taupe, tan, and brown.
I’m always clinging to summer as long as I can, and these colors really hit that note for me. As summer winds down, we may not be able to hit the waves any longer, but we can still enjoy the gorgeous colors of a beach sunrise–vibrant yellow and orange tones contrasting with the deep blue of the daybreak ocean. Oh, why can’t summer last a little longer?

“I love most forms of photography so expect to see cute kittens right next to dark industrial work. There is so much wonder all around us and I don’t want to miss any of it with my camera.”
