Yellow, blue, black and white.
While painting, I realized that I picked a really busy and complicated reference photo. I also noticed that I tend to focus on details too early.
Next time I'd like to 1) pick a photo that is less busy but has nice composition, 2) focus on further abstracting my marks – more blobs and swooshes instead of painting each perfect bush 3) be more patient with mixing colors and overall make the piece brighter.
