Experimenting with coloured trees

I wanted to do some experimentation with colours, to see how my tree would look with different coloured elements. I did this on photoshop, changing the colour properties and the saturation. The first colour change I did was green. I did like how the tree went a really acidy green, and the purple birds go really well with the flowers, which have stayed pink, and the teal coloured leaves. This tree is very spring like, however i think the purple birds would of been to dark when it came to production purposes. If I had more time, I would have liked to have mess around with this colour a little more, to see whether lightening the birds a bit would have made it a bit more spring-like.

The second coloured image I did was was blue. I did like the red birds on this one, however, I don’t feel like the colours go together very well, and the blue is a little bit too bright for my liking. I just don’t think that this image gives off the same spring feels what the others do!

The third tree colour I used was purple. I really liked this tree as I loved the yellow colour that the birds went. I also like that the flowers and leaves have swapped colours. The purple tree really goes in cohesion with the yellow flowers. This tree gives a real spring like feel and I would have used these colours as my original piece if I had time to change it because I love how much cohesion all of the different elements have with each other.

Finally, the last colour i experimented with was red. Again, similarly to the blue tree, i didn’t really like this Β one as much because the colours don’t have great cohesion and don’t compliment each other at all. The red does give the tree a bit more of an autumn feel and looks a little but too in your face. There is too much red and too much blue, so the colour variation isn’t exactly great. I wouldn’t have used this as a final design, may,y because it doesn’t have a very spring feel to it, and the colours aren’t cohesive.

Overall, some of the colour experiments went really well, but some just didn’t work. However, I am glad with the colours I did use for my final piece, as I believe they were the most successful colours.

    The lime green tree and the blue tree for me! The red tree, to me, kind of overpowers the birds, and the turquoise is a colour I’m not attracted to. A perfect quote to go with the picture!
