In the first entry of this series I went through the steps I took to come up with an image of world peace. Once the sketch was approved I began photographing models.
With photos of all the models and various reference I refined the sketch into a more interesting drawing.
This sketch was scanned into the computer and using photoshop a number of colour studies were tried:
Double complimentary (orange with blue and red with green) colour scheme:
Triad (red, yellow, blue) with light background:
Triad (red, yellow, blue) with a near complimentary counterpoint (green-orange) and dark background:
This last version is the one that we choose to use. In the next entry I will show the painting and installation of the mural.
