Danish graphic designer Maria Grønlund (opens in new tab) recently developed this beautiful series of drawings, titled 'I Speak Fluid Colors', primarily for aesthetics but also as a study in colours and Illustrator (opens in new tab) techniques, based on Illustrator blends tweaked in Photoshop (opens in new tab).
Inspired by nature, Grønlund based her abstract artwork on various natural elements, including fire, fluids, ink and lush greens. "The title is a metaphor for my creation of colour palettes," she explains. "Both literally the art of toning colors and a metaphor for it, is something that comes easy to me. Colours have become a big part of my brand as a graphic designer over the past couple of years."
We found ourselves immersed in these illustrations for some time, the vibrant pieces providing us with the same relaxing feeling as finding different shapes in the clouds. Just beautiful.
