12 Muting the reds, greens and blues
Sometimes our colour choices have more to do with what we don’t want, and here we don’t want anything vibrant. The character’s meant to look apprehensive, almost sad, so we’re going with muted and dull colours. There are reds, greens and blues, but they’ve all been muddied by the same brown so it mixes together and no one bit jumps out. We want things that are further away to be darker, while things that are closer or would be ‘in the light’ are given a brighter colour.
