Alaskan purple



I am not ashamed to admit my thievery: I steal each and every palette direct from nature.

Being in Alaska recently has given me inspiration galore. There's an entire rainbow of hues. I expected the blue and green and brown, but I was rather surprised how much purple you find.

The sky and water at midnight...



Flowers, wild and cultivated...



Sometimes lavendar, sometimes shading toward maroon...



Sometimes skirting at blue tones or contrasting sharply with brilliant green...




Here's a peek at one of the Alaskan purple palettes I've pulled straight from nature. Do you think they're just right or a little too strong?

They are just right and striking!!! Can't wait to see what comes of these colors. Do we get to see?
