Choosing the colours
I define the simple colour scheme early on, and keep this consistent between areas. Colour is a powerful conveyor of information and mood. Because this is more of a palace than a fortress, there are gold domes, flower beds and hedge mazes. The map is divided between two teams, so I adorn each team’s areas with either red or blue flowers, and a central shared area covered with violets. If you struggle with colour, try to paint outside with either a tablet or watercolours, and you’ll be a pro in no time!
