The palette is predominantly various shades of light greens, warm oranges, and small accents of cool blue and a little bit of purple. I tried to think about the proportions of each color as I drew the figure.
At this point it was a little too red and green - red figure, green background. And I kept playing with her profile! I should have stuck a sticky note on it...I was also grabbing my lilac pastel and having too much fun applying it everywhere! I PUT THE LILAC DOWN and moved on to the lime greens and peaches again.
At this stage everything is feeling a little better as far as working together - the background and figure have many layers of red, greens and peaches, not just one or the other. I'm still not 100% happy with her profile, so I'll work on that some more.
I liked working from this palette - I will probably try it again!
