Mastering The Art Of Colour Blocking – Art 101

Black Baseline

Colours are so important in our everyday lives. Colours influence our moods and change the perception of a place or an individual. The color wheel will be your best friend! The best color combinations are within two to three spaces of each other. If you’ve mastered this skill set you can add additional combinations with colors diagonal of each other.

Starting with the primary colour black. This colour says notice me but when combined with other colours especially white, you are saying notice me but do not intrude. Black is a powerful colour to combine with any colour. Some people believe you should not wear black with other dull colours, I beg to differe. It depends on what other dull colour you are wearing black with. Take a cue from the pictures below.

1. When colour blocking with a black baseline, wear it with pastel colour, wear it with shimmers – gold and silver, wear it with bright colours. Find ways to mix and match other colours into the mix. don’t just go for plain boring black, go for sophistication, go for other colours.

????????????????????????????????????????

1) Black and gold. Think of anywhere gold can fit on a dress, or in an outfit, it will. When next you are thinking of wearing black, think of adding some gold colours.
