Hello! It’s Rachel of Lines Across here to share another color study with you. Today I’m sharing my very favorite color, blue. I especially love the way that different shades of blue look together, and it reminds me of the beautiful ocean and the sky. Follow along with me on Instagram for more colorful inspiration.


I’ve noticed that whenever I’m drawing, or painting, or making, blue is usually the first color I reach for. It’s gotten to the point where the shades of blue on my watercolors set are much lower than all of the other colors. And of course when I recently shared a tutorial for fun polka dot watercolor art, I chose to paint with shades of blue.

One of the things I’ve learned from taking these color study pictures is to notice things that are seemingly ordinary and boring. I have started to naturally categorize and organize everything by color, and find beauty in some of the little things in life.

Be sure to share your colorful snaps with us on Instagram with #ISpyDIYcolor and #lacolorstudies

  11. “Making stuff is a way of life” I totally agree! I think that men should constantly create in order to keep their mind sharp.Besides creating home made art or even life hacks is tons of fun and a cool mind game 🙂
