Apps to Create Beautiful Colour Palettes

I was originally a Visual Arts teacher and spent many hours working with students to finalise colour schemes for particular artworks. It is amazing how the colour combinations can change a work and help to create an emotional response. Combining colours is not an easy task for many people.
