Color Lisa: Color Palettes Based on Masterpieces of Worlds Greatest Artists


Color-Lisa-Color-Palettes-by-Claude-Monet-for-Graphic-Designers-1

I do love poking around all the various color palettes, and colour swatch libraries currently available online.

I frequently visit such established colour palette websites as ColourLovers for inspiration for new logo design, and other graphic design projects.

Color Lisa is a tasty variation of existing color palette and swatch libraries, based on painted masterpieces of the worlds greatest artists, for us Graphic Designers.

Color Lisa was made by Ryan McGuire, who also made the free photo image website, Gratisography.com

The Color Lisa website  is simple enough to get around; there's only one long page listing the artists from A-Z. Click M in the top list of letters from A-Z, and you'll jump down to Monet, for example.

Color Lisa is a curated list of color palettes based on masterpieces of the worlds greatest artists. Each palette was painstakingly created by color obsessed designers, artists, museum curators, and masters of color theory. Palettes are constantly being added to help keep your designs colorful and fresh.

Color Lisa was made by Ryan McGuire, an artist, photographer, designer, and lover of color. Fun fact about Ryan: he drives a bright green (HEX #A5C955) and orange (HEX #E9AF42) 1971 VW Beetle he turned into a dinosaur. Questions, guest curator requests, and praise :) can be sent to [email protected].
