I’m adjusting the original photo and removing all of the high chroma colors in the foreground.
I’m thinking that once I refine these areas of the painting it will look better but as of now I’m not too thrilled with all the gray. I’m struggling to fine a balance between interest and focus. I want the focus to be on the figure and not the items surrounding, but at the same time I don’t want them so dull that they are lost.
I’ll keep working on it and see what I can learn.
