Collage Studies - Ellen Meents

The first photo is my attempt to portray a muted composition using pure hues of both complements to balance the composition.

The second photo shows a composition using muted complements and a pure hue as a focal point.

The third photo is a go at balancing muted complements using at least four distinct and separate values.

The fourth photo is a chromatic gray color scheme using a muted yet brighter pink as the focal point.  I had to paint a second paper to get the toned intensity range as the first one was more color than gray.

 

I am enjoying this and feel I am finally starting to understand how some of the terminology applies.
