5 Autumn Color Palettes We Love For Fall Coloring
Fall is finally here, and that means one thing—color!
Choosing the right color scheme for your coloring pages isn’t always easy, but this time of year all you need to do is take a look outside to find inspiration. It’s everywhere! The trees are trading in their bright summer greens for rich, earthy tones that are a colorist’s dream come true.
Deep shades of amber, red, and purple put us in the mood for cozy nights by the fire, curled up with a good coloring book. Autumn-themed coloring pages make beautiful home decor and gifts to celebrate the season—and these luscious color palettes are guaranteed to bring out the best of the fall colors in your artwork!
Awesome Autumn Color Palettes
If you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, don’t! Bright summertime blues and yellows get a softer autumn edge in teal, gold, and orange. Orange and blue are complementary colors, and these rich fall tones create a beautiful contrast.
This palette is the perfect transitional color scheme between the seasons. It is somehow both bright and earthy, and warm and cool at the same time. A rusty brown is just the right color to balance out the saturated tones of autumn.
Olive green and a pumpkin-y gold balance out the cooler grey and purple tones in this palette, while a deep brown adds an earthy, balanced base. A unique combination of colors that complement each other beautifully—on the table or in your coloring book!
There’s nothing more classically “fall” than a pleasing mix of red, orange, gold, and brown. A not-too-bright green provides an interesting contrast without drawing too much attention to itself. This palette is well-balanced and simple.
Have you tried monochromatic coloring yet? Using different shades of the same or similar colors creates an elegant look that mimics the subtle textures of the natural world. A beautiful way to highlight the rich colors of the season—or any of your favorite colors!
