A word about color harmony...
I wish I had taken a picture of this work yesterday when the color of this boys' clothes really conflicted with the landscape color.
He had a bright lemon yellow shirt and bright blue pants. Sharmila and I discussed what might create a more harmonius work and it was decided to abandon the actual photograph and work with a color scheme that already existed in the landcape. What an amazing transformation this color change made...
MORAL OF THIS STORY: Don't be married to your photograph or scene! If it doesn't work, change it, eliminate it, move things around, but don't stick with it if it simply isn't working...the end.
