Colors

You may be inclined to disregard The Picture Collection’s Colors folder (pictures of colors?)  but if you take the time to delve, you will find a resource that could be of great help to artists seeking inspiration and reference, as well as aid in color theory and color composition.  Inside this 79-image folder you will not only find paint swabs and color charts, but also images that show the relation of color through photography, advertisements, and commercial sales.  This folder can help an artist choose their pallet for a project. Users can scan hues that they are interested in utilizing and drop them in Photoshop for replication, or color copy selections and concoct a collage physically. A great help for advertising and graphic design students–or really anyone interested in…color…the Colors folder is worth checking out.
