Get to know Chases artist and workshop instructor, Ashley Norman in three questions:

 

What is the best advice you can give when it comes to using color?
Start looking at colors around you. If you are trying to think of what color combinations to use, look to nature. Artists and designers have been doing that since the dawn of time. 

 

Do you intentionally create a distinct color palette in your own artwork, if so, how would you describe it?
I really like to make colors pop and play tricks with the eye. I often go toward complementary color combinations.

 

What is your all time favorite color?
I LOVE mustard yellow. You can achieve it by mixing the smallest amount of purple with yellow. (Notice that they are complementary colors!)
