color studies

some color studies I have done for my current project


  1. The middle one is my favorite but there are a few issues. Personally I think they are all too saturated and that this image might look better with a more neutral palette. Look up harvey dunn and see how he uses colorful greys and how the palette influences the mood of his pieces.

    Also, the values are not the same in each of these images. So in addition to the varying colors, they are actually different compositions. You might want to stick a few of these in levels or try and make sure your values stay similar during the coloring process.

    Overall, I love how this image is coming along. I have liked the idea from the beginning and I am glad to see it coming along so nicely.


  2. good idea, i will try that! thanks for the feedback Evan
