Paint Swatch Colours

Art Inspiration 10 – Paint Swatch Colours

Paint swatches from the local hardware store can be a good source of inspiration for a colour palette. Not only will they go with the colour of the lounge room wall but they will also give you the opportunity to try out different swatches next to each other and in a variety of combinations without having to undo a single tube.
