Summer has arrived, and those bright spring colors are deepening as people prepare to sip, swim and sail.

Here at GelWriter, it’s fair to say that we love all manner of colors. Be they muted winter hues, or the sullen streaks of a stormy sky, or the sherbet shimmer of an abalone shell, we’re a fan. Summer promises salty beach days, fruity cocktails and abundant sunsets—here are some color palettes to help you capture summertime vibes in your coloring pages and doodles!

Shades of red, pink and green capture the refreshing essence of watermelon slices and cherry limeade, welcome treats on a hot summer’s day.

Harness summer’s warmth with this sunny collection of oranges and pinks.

Nothing cries summer quite like cerulean seas lapping a sandy shore. Capture that cool bliss with this spread of silver, green, blue and just a dash of brown-gold.

Moody yet tropical, a blend of deep purple and uplifting orange is perfect for capturing the feeling of sunset-at-sea.
