Colorful Spring Colors…

green41The daffodils are sprouting, the light is increasing (even more after I re-set my clock tonight to daylight savings time), there are “new” birds  singing…spring is on it’s way! Soon local asparagus will begin showing up in the markets. I spent part of the afternoon mixing springlike colors= more white, more fluorescent to brighten the colors.

citronYou can download  the Pantone Spring color forecast here… This color from the spring 2009 selections is called dark citron #16-0435 (I bet this is a color that Kim Cavender would like) =the starting pint is –  16 parts cadmium yellow, 8 parts fluorescent yellow, 6 parts ultramarine blue and 1 part fuchsia- after you have mixed this you can use it as is, or add 1/8 black to get a darkered valued version or 1/4 white to get a lighter valued version.
