Color in the Cheetahs' Forest!



Color in the cheetahs' forest. I decided to do all the cool color shadowed elements first, and to use pure colors whenever possible before starting to add black and white or complements. I want this to have the searing vivid spectrum beauty of the pastels that have high intensity colors -- and it is much easier to mute colors than to make them searing bright again. So I'm not putting in the deepest darks yet, the Ultramarine stands for deepest darks till I get the other pure colors in.

I'm not doing any of the fire or the cats till this background is done either, so that I don't muddy the blues and violets and greens with their complements. So you'll see white ghost cheetahs for a while, but I hope this satisfies the color lovers watching this WIP!

Colors used so far: Ultramarine and Turquoise in Pan Pastels.
