The “Bicycle Rider By The Loire By Milton Avery” Color Scheme

I love working on and working within a organized color scheme. It comes from my years as a painter and theatrical set designer.

The other day in one of the web design groups I’m a part of on FaceBook another member posted a link to a color scheme website called “Color Lisa: Color palette masterpieces from the world’s greatest artists” and as I was looking through the schemes there I saw one that was almost exactly the one I was using here to develop this persona website of mine called “Bicycle Rider By The Loire By Milton Avery”

Bicycle-Rider-By-The-Loire-By-Milton-Avery

…which is based on the painting titled Bicycle Rider By The Loire by Milton Avery.

I wasn’t “exactly on” with my picks in that I haven’t deployed and of the yellow #F3C937 on any objects yet and the brown #604847 replaced the brown #722809 I had already chosen as did the #552723 replace the #542400 I already had is place but other than that I pleasantly surprised I had chosen the color palette I did.

Color Lisa – Curated Color Palette Masterpieces.

Color Lisa is a curated list of inspiring color palettes based famous work of the world’s greatest artists. Each palette was painstakingly created by color obsessed designers, artists, museum curators, and masters of color theory.
