Exploring deeper into the world of neutrals within color schemes …..

Scribe and Squares

Based on the throw of the die, the color scheme came up Double Split Complements with blue-violet as one of the dominant colors.  My colors were Blue-Violet, Yellow-Orange, Red-Violet and Yellow-Green.  I neutralized all of them, bringing them closer to browns and grays, but keeping in mind the original hue.  I wanted to stay closer to the nature of the metal and wood of my father’s scribe and squares.
