2 Settling on a colour scheme
As I flesh out various forms in the composition I also think of the basic colour scheme that I’ll follow to the finish. I already have my background colour (ochre and orange) fixed, so I decide to have a violet and a green in there. This gives me a triad colour scheme to work with.
I decide to keep it warm overall with some cool relief near the
focal point. At this stage I want to keep the green on the focal point: the head region.
