I am a huge fan of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I first read the books in grade school, which cemented my not so inner nerdiness for all time. And fell head over in heels in love with Peter Jackson’s trilogy.
I rewatched the LOTR trilogy last week (nerd!) and was struck this time around by the amazing color and texture in the films.
To the point that I start planning colorways for hand dyed yarn. I know I’m not the first, but oh what fun!
I was completely mesmerized by Mordor’s stark greys with vivid pops of flame and lava. One of my favorite color combinations is orange and grey. You can see my first attempt to capture this combination above: palest pearl grey to rich concrete to dark soot, with pale to warm apricot, peach and salmon.
I am often inspired by colors or texture from movies. What about you? What inspires you?
