I’m issuing a Color Challenge – you in?

color challenge

With my book Understanding Color set to launch two Mondays from now, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to celebrate. So, I’m issuing a color challenge!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is this: grab a color palette below, make a piece of art using those colors as inspiration, then enter to win a prize pack.

Once you’ve made your piece, take a photo of it, then fill out this form to submit your entry. You have until 12pm Central Standard Time on Wednesday, July 10th, 2013 to enter. That gives you five weeks to make your art!

Work in any medium you like – jewelry, fabrics, patterns, digital designs, collages, paintings – the choice is yours. And if you want to make multiple designs? Go for it. Just fill out the form for each creation you make.

This challenge giveaway is open to any artist worldwide. The prize pack will include a digital copy of Understanding Color and 3 palette prints for you to enjoy. And yes, I’ll ship the prints internationally!

So, without further adieu, here are the palettes:

Once all entries are in, I’ll share what people have submitted here, too, then randomly pull a winner from that entry pool.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Happy coloring!

  1. You know what I just discovered in looking at your full palette image at the top? That a lot of the different combinations that work really well with any 6 adjacent colors… like the top three in the last two columns on the right… and the bottom two in the last three columns… and the third and fourth rows in columns 2-3-4… there are endless possibilities!

  2. Hi Brandi,
    In looking at the deadline -> is it MONDAY, July 8, or Wednesday, JULY 10?
    You’re excited – and you should be!! 🙂

  3. Gotta use all the colors in the chosen swatch? Any substitutions allowed? First color on the left of swatch 4–a dark blue or a dark blue purple? Thanks!

    • Hey Sue! You don’t have to use all of the colors, and if you really, really, really want to substitute colors, go for it. As for the first swatch on #4, it’s a dark blue.

  4. Brandi Dear, What a great challenge! I’m totally in! In fact I sent a picture of the finished piece to you yesterday… Whew! I have to give you some kudos… You do come up with some very unique and interesting color combinations, that I would NEVER think of… Great Job!

    I look forward to seeing all the entries when you post them… Very exciting! And good luck to all those who are participating. Thanks Brandi!
