As we near the start of fall, this week I’m sharing 5 free crisp and cozy fall color palettes! I’ve provided each color palette’s HEX numbers as well as a Procreate swatch download. The palettes are reminiscent of the beautiful colors of Autumn and memories of those cooler, crisper days. You’ll find warm greens, dark browns, dark autumn shades and lighter shades, too. You’ll also find fall foliage colors like burnt orange, dark green, olive, mustard yellow, deep brown and deep green. If you start craving anything pumpkin spice after this post, we’ll take the blame #sorrynotsorry 😉 Let’s jump in!

Comparing fall color schemes

To see the differences a color palette makes, I created a fall bouquet and recolored the same bouquet with each new fall color palette. To create the bouquet, I used several brushes from my Bouquet Maker brush set.

For each color palette, I painted in the fall colors using the Tuesday Waterbrush found in my Messy Watercolors brush set, only lifting my stylus to change shapes. This kept a consistent watercolor texture throughout, along with those realistic overlaps of denser color. 😍
