IMG_1127 Color Study #1

I put this palette together for a different  pose of the same two subjects. When I finished the color study, I did not like it as much.  With this pose I kept envisioning bright sunshine and foliage, and this color suggests a quieter, more serene atmosphere.


Color study #2.

Instead of tonal all over color, I went back to using realistic flesh tones and hair color. The  background will have cool blue-greens for depth and highlights of yellow greens. Shadows will be done in cool blues and purples with golden highlights to create the contrast of a bright sunny day.

The feeling I want to evoke is one of warmth and pleasure.
