Alica – Color Contrast

For this assignment I did a picture of a tulip that I found online. The dark version is close to the original picture. The light value version differs from the dark one mainly in the color of background. In the dark verstion I used raw umber mixed with black, while in the light version I mixed it with white. The contrast between the background and the flower is high in the dark picture, yet much less significant in the light picture.

  1. This is a really nice recreation that you did. Out of the two I think I prefer the darker picture because the dark background makes the flower really stand out. I also think it’s easier to notice shading and detail on the darker leaves. Great job!
