Inspire Me Monday: Coloring Camellias using the Color Wheel

Hello Power Poppy Friends! Today I hope to inspire you with bright colors using Camellias. This is a digital set found in the Power Poppy Store.

Camellias are usually shades of pink, red or white. Honestly, I wanted to inspire you to use colors you like or are feeling at the moment you start a project. I felt like using shades of orange... so I did! Then using the Triadic Theory of the Color Wheel. I went with Green and Purple to complement.  

Wondering what the Triadic Theory is of the color wheel? Three colors spaced equally apart on the color wheel. I chose oranges, so purples and greens were Triadic in theory.  So I was comfortable in knowing that the finished piece would be balanced in colors and by using the below colors that started with 1 in the Copic Color Family. I knew it would be brighter as well with little-to-no gray undertones.

Here is the color palette if you want to give it a go :)

Thanks for coming by today!
