Finally, here is a new general inspiration post from here on Andrew Kelsall Design. Previously, I have featured projects based on Pantone colours including The Soaking Wet Pantone Rain Edition, Pantone Shades from the Human Race and even some Pantone Folding Chairs.
This project showing ink in water photography is entitled ‘Rose Quartz & Serenity’, and was undertaken by photographer Neal Grundy. The project was inspired by the Pantone colours of the year 2016. Neal is currently based in Brighton, United Kingdom. Check out some selected photographs from the collection…
