As an artist, I’m constantly thinking about my color palette and how I can reinvent it as my work progresses. I’m most often inspired by color in ways that reflect emotions and moods. A painting’s color palette can completely alter what someone sees and feels when they look at it. HP’s Spectre has inspired me to use my color palette and lines in a much more minimal way. There’s something so incredibly stunning and calm about it’s lines and color palette.

I’m obsessed with finding ways to use metallics to convey a sense of luxurious calm. A moonlit sky conveyed with midnight neutrals combined with the beauty of a twinkling night of sparkling metallic’s and whites to signify it’s stars. This color palette creates a sense of quiet. A calm, beautiful, night’s sky.

I’ve also begun to think carefully about each line and brushstroke… is each and every line necessary to convey the image? To reinvent something I see through minimal line and color. I’ve become obsessed with minimizing my lines down to the bare minimum. It’s fascinating that often a single line can say so much, isn’t it? Striking and to the point… yet still contains that sense of mysterious luxury.
