There’s a Shutterstock gallery of Pantone’s colours of the year 2016 (a pale pink and gentle blue called Rose Quartz and Serenity respectively) available to view through the stock image site’s blog. It’s a visual feast of pink and blue, showcasing some of the best examples of the colour combination we’ve seen so far this year.
A natural combination
Pink and blue are two very distinct colours. However, these calming tones are present in natural landscapes such as flowers, glaciers, seascapes, and underwater life. Other photographs capture the striking pink and blue combination in architecture, homeware and even children’s sweets. Other works include digital art, fashion photography and photoshoots involving ice cream, cocktails and currency.
Seeing all these images collected together is a sensation for the senses. Seeing how much the gentle pink and calming blue occur naturally is fascinating – it’s similar to the experience of learning a new word and then hearing it everywhere. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to use the colour combination, or just want to zone out with the tranquil imagery, this gallery is a great place to start.
