Pastel Inspirations

  'Twas a hot day!

It's already July! But for me, it's still "my summer". You know, I didn't enjoy this year's summer since I need to find a job after holy week of April. College is quite expensive! Luckily, my first attempt was successful!

Look the details. Lace and metal rose! Do you like it?

Moving on, I really want wear something light for this day. Weather is crazy, would you agree me? :) My inspiration is PASTEL EASTER COLORS.

During my art class in high school, we were taught about color wheels. I usually use pastels as my medium for coloring. But don't you know that I rarely use light colors? Yes! I'm more on the darker ones because, for me, they can give extra density and texture to my artworks. I will only use light colors for blending, correcting, and emphasizing of the spot lights. 

They said that pastel colors symbolizes Springtime colors. Philippines got two seasons: rainy and sunny days! However, I realized that the equivalent of spring season in the other countries was the summer days of Philippines (late March-April). Pastel colors signifies rebirth, new beginnings, and a new life.

Wondering what are these pastel colors? These are colors with low saturation, and light colors. Most common are light orange, blue, pink, yellow, lavender and green.

Yellow symbolizes happiness, and joy like the might sun will rise up in the sky. Green presents rebirth, renewal and hope just like the leaves of the tress will sprout again. Pink gives us the refreshing look, healthy beginnings!

Until next time,
