13 Make the colour suit the emo­tion that de­fines the scene

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

The core idea of the paint­ing should de­ter­mine the colour scheme. A som­bre, dra­matic mood calls for som­bre, dra­matic light­ing and colour. I could have painted the hatch­ing scene in sweet pas­tel colours and bright morn­ing light, but I imag­ine it more as an ur­gent mo­ment of cri­sis, where life hangs in the bal­ance. So I stage the scene at night, as if daz­zled by the in­tru­sion of a pho­tog­ra­pher's flash. By con­trast, the Parasaurolo­phus paint­ing is colour­ful and cheer­ful as the young di­nosaurs ex­plore their world.
