Living Room: Lots of Gray

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.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
