Pirates of the Carribean~
This one will be the last post in this series for a few weeks...I've got real work to attend to for now. Back to sunlight and to the beach! I love beachy scenes! Wonderful opportunity to paint a wonderful medley of earthtones in the clothes and to play with brush strokes. Used a tiny filbert brush for skirt. Never saw this movie. Rush job; unfinished, being called away to...responsibilities now..sigh...
WHY THIS WORKS:
The background is the most saturated with color and the lightest value, which is a contrast to the figures who are mostly dark neutrals with sparks of diluted saturated color. In most of the pictures I have worked on, the figures tend to be the most saturated and lit up with light and the background is dark and desaturated.
