Early 20th Century Color Palettes

I created a series of early 20th century color palette swatches to use in the Adobe Creative Suites. They are inspired by the important movements of the early 1900's and the Pantone color series books. Below is a sample of the swatch series on one of my original prints, and the free download .zip file of these swatches. I would like to share these free swatch palettes I created with you for your creative pursuits and would love to see what you create. Also included in this post are a few source images of inspiration by a few key artists of the early 20th century, which some of these color palettes are derived by and my Pinterest board of Edwardian Fashion. Please feel free to share any designs or sketches made with these free downloads.

This print and collage study is based on the timeline of my life, starting at the protozoa, and ending with me looking at you, looking at me, looking you.
