Colour Inspiration: Isle of Mull

Colour Inspiration: Isle of Mull

I spent a few days exploring the Isle of Mull and neighbouring, uninhabited Treshnish Isles - Staffa and Lunga. I have created two colour palettes inspired by the vivid tones found in the unspoilt scenery. 

The first image is of Fingals Cave on Staffa Island - the incredible form and textures are created entirely from hexagonally joined basalt columns. The greys and creamy whites, not unlike the colour of natural cements, hits the turquoise and deep indigo sea beautifully. I've picked out these colours below creating a contemporary, tonal colour story. 



The next image was taken on the Isle of Lunga - it is abundant in plant life with many rare and endangered plants native to the island. I loved wandering around the island taking in the vivid tones of the wild flowers. I've picked out the bright pinks and yellows of the petals beside the burnt orange and natural grassy tones to create a fun, almost fruity colour way.
