I found this great vintage photo online. It's got this natural color palette. Muted teals seen in dresses and chairs, muted reds in shoes and shirts, gray architecture and birds. Really nice.
For my dots, I decided to use colors that felt in stark contrast to the photo - super saturated Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. Then I decided to up the contrast even more by slightly blurring and adding noise to the photo.
I thought it would be fun to make it seem like we didn't get anyone's permission to use this photo - including the pigeons.
