Complimentary Portrait – I wanted to do a self-portrait, but I have not yet learned how to get PEOPLE, if that makes sense. I can get my lines right and totally lose my face. I need work. The color scheme was straightforward, though.
I decided to do a blue monochromatic scheme, because my mother likes that color scheme. I liked using the blues because they made the forest seem mysterious. Wish her head was in proportion. But whatevs.
I liked this color scheme – Split Complementary – the best. It has a lot of really great contrast. I decided to use that and go for a relatively simple design, kind of impressionistic. This is my favorite piece from this assignment.
