Progress: The Decorator XXIV



For this one, I'm working to subdue my color palette and steer clear of using too many acidic bright shades like in the other pieces. From a technical standpoint, I think this is a good idea but I'm having trouble deciding if less intense colors will support my concept. These certainly aren't dull colors by any means, so I think it will turn out fine. My plan is to add lots of different blue and green values and allow the pink undercoats to remain themselves for more contrast and I also want some more neutrals, especially warm, rich grays.
