Feet

This week, I had serious problems deciding exactly which composition to choose, there were just so many great options! I ended up choosing this one because I really liked the shadow pattern; notice how it moves across the page from dark to light to dark to light to dark... and so on. I was also drawn by the solidness of her feet on the floor in contrast to all the light shapes, which feel to me that they're reaching up...

Stage one.

.

I have all the shapes and lights and darks blocked in, with the underlying colors, but the colors are WAY too intense. They definitely need to be neutralized.

Stage two.

Now that I've neutralized some of the colors and messed around with my value structure a little bit more, it's finished! Time to start another one...

Annnd done!
