Above is a photograph I took on a sunny day at the beach. It is one of my favorites because of the intensity and depth of color. The deep blue-green of the ocean looks so much like my favorite Tila Bead that I decided it would be a perfect anchor color in a Mosaic Wrap Bracelet. It is important to not only identify the key colors but to also note the balance of the colors. In this photograph, the main colors are the blue of the sky, the deep blue-green of the ocean, and the sandy-cream of the shore. The white caps of the waves and the gold of the distant cliffs are important too, but could be incorporated with less frequency to keep the balance of colors true to the photograph. Darker grays and browns can be seen on the shore.
