We’ve recently been looking for color inspiration to paint, so I took to Instagram to find some inspiration. In the process, I found a collection of great artists that you should be following. Whether you need motivation for a new project or color inspiration as I sought out to do, check out my top 10 Instagram users for color inspiration.
Shelby Edwards leads my list with simple, yet creative use of color and unique subjects. Who knew a banana or spoon could look so cool?
Pawel Nolbert does some amazing work with paint and photography among a great strength for street photography. I can scroll through this account without feeling like it is too much of the same content. But how is it done?!
José Sales is based in Brazil and does these amazing color stories for several images. You can see the color palette change as you scroll down and I can honestly say that I've spend quite a bit of time in awe of his stories. I had to show more than two for him... so rad!
#297▼▲ A conversa era boa, eu e ele, passamos horas naquele deserto planejando como poderiamos encontrar água para viver. Mas, tudo piorou quando ele, em sua tristeza profunda, começou a chorar, dizendo que não sabia se ia sobreviver só com água, porque sentia a necessidade de ter mais alguém para poder fofocar da vida alheia... Sei, que cada um, tem os seus motivos pessoais para sobreviver, mas diante daquela cena, o meu silêncio foi aniquilador. . Fotógrafo : @DANLUCC . #Deserto #rayban #itboy
Jesuso is based in Malaga, Spain and does great work with light pastels. I love this tone of blue he uses throughout his account.
Kelly Mindell is based out of Los Angeles and her account is exactly what it promises, “celebrating the holidays + the every day!” A great account if you want to see someone in a french fry suit.
Based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, this self described "happy kid" makes her scenes out of paper and beautifully puts them against colored and real life backgrounds.
Matt Crump's "daily dose of sugar" gives you a jump of color with food and inanimate objects. I like the pastels used throughout to give a consistent color story without the feeling of conformity.
Aurelie Cerise is based in Paris and does an amazing job adding elements of people within her color palettes.
