Color Studies in Photoshop

More experimentation with brush shape and texture in Photoshop, this time trying to copy lighting and color from photographs.

Using the eyedropper to sample a color from a photograph and moving sliders around, rather than squirting paints out of a tube and mixing them together with a brush…feels like cheating. But it’s a good way to quickly see what the dominant colors in an image are. I’m always surprised by what sampled colors look like out of the context of their original image, and I hope to develop a better sense for seeing colors in place with practice.
