Cassie Color Study

CassieMy adorable niece Cassie

This is a color study that uses an analogous color scheme (colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel) of green, turquoise and primary blue. It was done by posterizing a photo in PhotoShop, printing out the line only version on Bristol paper and filling in the values with gouache. Gouache is a new medium for me, but I’m starting to like it even though it can be a bit temperamental. This was fun to do and a good way to study color that goes beyond making charts and scales, which can get quite repetitive.
