White Inspiration – Color A Day #49

"Aporia crataegi-Black-veined White", By Igor Siwanowicz
I stumbled across this beautiful monochromatic image taken by Photographer Igor Siwanowicz (see more of his work here).  I was struck by the beauty of these gray/white moths.  Although I immediately categorized the colors in this photo as “white”, the truth is that these colors are not strictly white.  The subtle white shades found here are mixed with gray and brown or tan.  It’s this small touch of color that brings warmth and variety to the white. Just the smallest touch of another color can gently tinge white and create a plethora of new shades.  And as anyone picking out colors to paint a wall knows, there are a huge variety of “white” paint colors to choose from.  Today’s color is inspired by…white.
