I am going to let you in on one of the best ways to find interesting web design color combinations and palettes! The beauty of it is that it does not have a steep learning curve (in fact, you will find it quite relaxing). Are you ready?
One of the best places to find great color palettes and combinations is in Nature! I keep a digital camera with me at all times. Especially during the Spring and Summer, as I walk through parks, on beaches, or through gardens, I study Nature for color usage. I will often see a color palette in a flower, orchid, rock or shell, in a leaf turning color during the Fall. . . I photograph the item and add it to a digital database. Later, I will browse this database for color ideas when a new project is started.
Try it yourself. Get away from the computer and study the handiwork of our Creator, the true master of color! You will find it to be a delightful source of inspiration and ideas.
