Portland, Oregon – With 2009 just around the corner, forecasters are busy identifying next years color trends for art and accessories. The top dog so far is a group called “Desert Sunset.” 

As you might have guessed, these color combinations evoke a beautiful sunset memory – reds, oranges, yellows, and golds.  These colors are not artificially bright nor mistaken for muddy earthtones. They are rich and elegant feeling – vibrant and natural at the same time.  Some are describing this palette as “comfort colors infused with energy and sophistication.”

A vital element in the Desert Sunset palette is the presence of
metallics. The luster and texture of metallic accents are essential to the
“Ahhh” factor here, so bronze, copper, and warm golds are added for depth, pop, and a high level of sophistication.
Obviously the metallics can be added with gold, bronze, or copper leaf or metallic paints, but for a truly unique shimmer, try reproducing an existing painting on a metallic surface.  To do this, you must search beyond standard “artist printers” who do giclees on canvas or paper only, you must search commercial & exhibit printers who can create art on almost any surface using a variety of sophisticated printers.
