Hello Glowing Color,
I have been looking for an affordable color consultation from the right place and I was so impressed with all your testimonials that I had to contact you. I am currently a student and unable to afford anything to crazy right now, but I also want to make the best impression possible as I start interviewing for my first job out of school. As an artist, I know how important color is for making a good first impression and more importantly, a lasting impression. I also find myself replacing my wardrobe right now as I outgrow my high school attire and would love tips on how to go about choosing the best colors for me as I enter into the adult world.
I am a student studying sequential art (cartooning and storyboarding) and will be going on to pursue my masters in art history and museum studies this upcoming Fall. I am interested in medieval studies and may go on to earn my PHD in that specific area. Right now, I am working on a young adult graphic novel about a sci-fi western treasure hunt. I am originally from Cleveland and am happy to be moving back this summer. Since I have been in the Savannah, Georgia, I miss the cold weather. I am a voracious reader. I want to pick up some sort of martial art study this summer! My artistic website is at www.samreveley.com.
Be sure to check out Samantha’s art! I love her illustrations and paintings, particularly Metamorphosis. Let’s now get into her Color Interview.
What color(s) do you wear the most? I wear plenty of greens and browns. I tend to have a rather earthy palette in my wardrobe.
What color(s) do you wear the least? Bright red, hands down.
In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? Forest green, off-white, and possibly purple (I am surprised to say I do not own anything in purple! That is totally based on memory).
In what color(s) do you receive compliments? It seems like I get a lot of compliments when I wear orange, although I am not quite sure because the orange shirt I wore for the photo is the only one I own! (Can you tell I’m a stingy student? Haha.)
Let’s take a look at Samantha in cooler colors first.
Now let’s look at Samantha in warmer colors.
Samantha is a lovely woman! I wasn’t sure at first glance what her season was, but it became clear after I grouped her photos together in cool or warm colors. I noticed that in the warm colors, Samantha does not look bad, but the colors are just resting on her, and even have a darkening effect on her overall look. In the cool colors however, Samantha’s creamy, rosy glow shines through. Samantha is a Winter.
See the difference?
