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 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.
