Step Three: The color scheme is finalized.
I hear back from the collector on colors she prefers, and do another shape sketch, still playing around with the overall arrangement. She has requested the poppy color (pinkish peachy) and has sent me color swatches early on, and has chosen after some thought: taupe, ivory and greens to complement the peachy color of the poppies. This was a wonderful combination that I would not have thought of, so I was excited to work with this set of colors. Taupe? What's the color you think of? I think every person has a different concept of those subtle, unusual colors.
