Don’t be afraid to really pump up the color. Your reference image can often distort color or the artist can use it too literally. The colors that are in our paintings do not need to be realistic to look natural. Always allow for the most expressive colors in your paintings! By adding lots of color variation we are ready to move on to the next step and do some blending.
