4 Cre­at­ing a pal­ette

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

With my tones es­tab­lished, I can be­gin to ex­plore how colour will af­fect the emo­tion of the im­age. I study suc­cess­ful paint­ings from mas­ter artists that give a sim­i­lar mood to the text of the book I’m il­lus­trat­ing. Be­cause The Bat­tle for WondLa is a story of con­flict, I re­search the pal­ettes of var­i­ous fa­mous war paint­ings. Emanuel Leutze’s 1851 paint­ing Wash­ing­ton Cross­ing the Delaware dis­plays a rich com­bi­na­tion of colours that are both cold and bleak, but also warm and earthy. It be­comes the cus­tom pal­ette for my piece. This pal­ette is avail­able for you to down­load.
