As a self-taught designer, I pretty much learned everything I know by myself but the one thing that has remained a constant problem/that I've struggled to get a hang of, is colour use. I can start and finish a design without issue in Photoshop or Illustrator but have a disability of balancing my colours and achieving a mood that compliments the design.
For the most part, I reference others' work from Dribbble, Behance, etc. but wanted to know how any of you guys figured it out? I know about many PS/web extensions, Adobe's Kuler (Color), etc. and the discipline of using a colour wheel, but still struggle.
Are there any other tips and suggestions to finally be able to work with colour?
