For my project I’ve chosen Alex Katz’s portrait of a woman in hat. On a yellow background woman’s face and hat stand out because of the contrast these colors in combination create. I decided to change the background for red, which made woman’s face and hat are much more subtle. When I looked at the original first, it appreared that the hat is black. On Friday I happened to talk to my friend who is an artist and she told me that the hat is dark violet. Based on that new insight I changed my colors. However, when I took a picture the violet color appears to behave like black. I probably needed to add some white to make the color little lighter.
