Pop of Color

I'm taking a different spin on color today. I want to look at color through the wonderful eyes of movie director, Wes Anderson.  Wes Anderson's films tell great stories that are hilarious and beautiful to see. His attention to detail is impressive. His films are known for their symmetrical compositions and limited saturated color palettes. His director style is describe as idiosyncratic. (Side bar: I had to look up the word "idiosyncratic". I usually don't like using words I can't pronounce.) Idiosyncratic is a fancy way of saying that he thinks outside the box. That's my kind of creative genius, smart and quirky.


Each of Wes Anderson's films have it's own color story. I think that's so cool. The colors he uses are more like muted neutral,pinks, yellows, greens, blues but highly saturated. I found a Tumblr blog  that features colors from his movies called Wes Anderson Palettes. There are several Pinterest boards dedicated to his color stories as well. There are tons of articles about Wes Anderson's style which I found really interesting. Its funny to me to find that he has a lot of admirers out there that are from the creative realm like myself. I guess that's the appeal of Wes Anderson, his creative uniqueness. I took  few of my favorite movies and made my own color palettes.






In March, Wes Anderson released his latest movie The Grand Budapest Hotel. I can't wait to see this one! The colors and scenes look amazing!
