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