A Chorus Line


All together now,

Sing your heart out, chirp, and whirl…

We’re on Broadway now!


I had some fun earlier with a color palette that I put together and a dancer that I converted into a shape in Photoshop (I’m learning a few new things in a summer class in case you couldn’t tell). If you’re into color, there is a great site that generates color palettes for you in a fun and simple way, and it’s called Coolors. And it is the coolest.

Here’s the palette that I created for the image above:

It was not my intention to create a background that looked EXACTLY like the palette (i.e. a bunch of rectangles), but once it was imported into Photoshop I thought it looked cool—so I duplicated it by using rectangles and fill. The effects process changed the shades ever so slightly, but they’re close enough.

Anyway, I don’t usually get into my processes, but I thought I would share that tidbit of information along with my Haiku, just for those who are interested. I’d love to do a series (here we go again) where I share some of the tips and tricks that I’ve learned in my classes thus far. What fun is learning if you can’t share it with someone? Right?! We’ll see. If anyone is interested, let me know.

That’s about all for now.


One can speak poetry just by arranging colors well, just as one can say comforting things in music.
