Yin Yang


It’s my last official day as a student (though my student ID card is still valid for another month… what can I find with a discount on? 😉 ), and I’ve popped down to the studio to do a bit of creative work before some of the tutors and my class mates come round this evening for an end of course party. These cards are part of my colour development work – I used Photoshop to create an inverted (negative) version of the distress ink colour palette and then colour matched the results to the inks. This way, I was able to quickly find the complementary colour for each ink, that being the colour opposite on the colour wheel. Frayed Burlap complements Weathered Wood, and Bundled Sage complements Dusty Concord. I added even more yin and yang with the Retro Circles texture fade folder.

  1. Well done completing your student days, Neil. Enjoy your party! I think your idea of photoshopping the distress inks and finding the complementary colour is genius. I must try this!!! (Love TH’s Retro Circles – I’ve got this embossing folder.)

    I really enjoy your posts. Your ideas are so unusual and stimulating. You deserve to do really well in your career as a professional artist, and now that your student days are over, I hope you will continue to post.
