Whether I’m using an app, cutting up pieces of paper, or arranging pans of makeup, I’m always excited by creating color palettes. Today, I’m trying something new purely for visual pleasure. Here, fine art is both the inspiration and the backdrop for these digital color palettes that replace swatches or “chips” with makeup. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them.
