I'm looking for some help. I've been attempting to improve my color work for quite some time now and I feel like I'm getting nowhere. I've tried tutorials and I constantly feel like there's something I'm missing. I wonder if I'm trying to fix too many problems at once and thought perhaps you lovely folks could offer suggestions of where to focus so I don't feel overwhelmed.
I'm linking a few pieces that sort of seem to be heading in the direction I'd like to go.
I want a more realistic look to my work. My colors are too saturated but try as I might I haven't been able to get away from the bright colors.
I feel like my color is a big part of what's holding me back. I know its not the only thing, but its one thing that I feel has been glaring me in the face for a while.
Thank you in advance for any insight/critiques/suggestions.
