Color comp-Crow fair Indian on Horse
Here is my color comp for the next large piece. This is from the reference I shot in Montana two weeks ago. I spent a couple of days stretching the canvas and drawing in the image. It will be a 40"x60."
The comp is sized at 8" by 12."
I learned a lot from doing the comp. The original reference is very high in contrast. I tried to adjust this in the comp by adding cool highlights to the horse and to the rider.
I think it could receive even more of the sky colors to make the image more believable. Erik suggested lowering contrast in the sky area as well.
