    Need opinions on Colour/composition




    Simultaneous contrast:

    1. The eye seeks harmony (complementary colours)
    2. The absence of harmony is compensated.

    We chose a colour...then selected a colour that was close to it's complementary. I chose blue and yellow-orange. I am only able to use those colours + white and black.

    I think I've explored alot of the variations I can do physically with the paint but am not so sure I've explored all of the possibilities with the colour relationships. We are also being marked on composition and I know I need to make some changes there.

    To do:

    1. Make a change to one of the blues in the lower middle area. Perhaps another colour that strikes through all three?
    2. Make a top layer over solid colours to create a sense of depth. Also, I will go over some of the messy looking areas.
    3. Change those two circles. What was I thinking?

    Do you have any suggestions/ideas I've missed? Thanks for any help!

    Right now, the focal point seems to be right in front of the ear, but there are so many elements that aren't supporting it, there is a strong feeling of unintential disorder.

    You've got 2 swirlies, 2 circles (I know you're getting rid of them), 2 chunks of ivory-ish color, 2 instances of yellow. I don't know why, but these points stand out. I mean, I know that odd numbers seem more natural in many things, but I don't know why these things jumped out at me.

    I would start far more simply, then add-in complexity in order to support the deisgn.

    Interesting, though.

    I think the use of the face is clever, but the piece is sort of disorienting to me... Some parts pop out, but others are very flat. I'd just follow Dogfood's suggestions.

    Keep it goin'!
