I decided to explore some more color options once I had made the beginning fabric collage you see on the far left. First I drew the basic shapes in the computer and started filling them in with flat color, keeping to the original values in the collage for the most part. The middle color sketch is very cool, and the third idea on the right is very warm and a little unusual. (I have a scrap of fabric that is brown with light colored stars I think might make an interesting sky!)
All of these color sketches benefit from the use of orange and yellow as accent colors. Next I will go to my fabric collection and see what I can find. I’ll be looking for interesting patterns as well as colors inspired by these sketches. The real fun is beginning!
