Color Comp Demo

Here is today's demo on matching color on the computer. In order to improve your color memory, its essential that you take time to look at color combinations from artists you like, and see if you can apply the same colors to your own piece.

When matching colors I follow this method:

Match Hue
Match Value
Match Saturation or Intensity

Work from the background to the foreground.
Block in the basic shapes.
Add atmospheric perspective by adding haze or blurring portions of your painting.
