Free colour palettes for October

This month we mostly have fallen leaves, but can you blame me?

Oh, and since it’s so appropriate, have some music as well.

Free colour palettes – August 2015

Hello and welcome to a new episode of “What colour is it?” with me, Somhairle Kelly, in which I look closely at all sorts of common things and turn them into a set of hex codes for your web & graphic design pleasure. These are Creative Commons licensed (CC:BY), which means you can use them for anything you like, but if you’re using them as part of a commercial design, you need to credit me by name & URL.

Colour palettes for July

Slightly late, because I’ve been at a festival! Some of these are taken from things I found there, some again from my allotment, some from my wanderings elsewhere.

As always, these are Creative Commons licensed (CC:BY) – what this means is that you can use them however you want, but if you’re making money from them you should include a note saying where you got them. And as always, I’d love to see what you do with them!

Free resources: Textures & Palettes

I needed something to revitalise this poor blog, so I decided to start a series of resources giveaways—a monthly set of colour palettes taken from the inspirations I’ve been finding in the last month, and a weekly set of textures. All of these will be licensed under a Creative Commons license, so you can (and should!) download them to use in your own art & design work. You’re welcome to use them in commercial work if you credit me, but you may not resell them or redistribute them without credit and a link back.

If you find these useful, please consider backing me on Patreon—with your help, I can not only keep doing this, but keep eating and buying paint and living in a house, too!

Here’s the first set of colour palettes— this last month, I’ve been doing a great deal of work on my allotment, so the colours are all taken from the fruit & flowers there. We have bramble flowers, purple sage, flowering rhubarb, love-in-the-mist, a yellow rose, blackcurrants, strawberries, gooseberries, foxgloves, and the elusive scarlet pimpernel.
