Color Layout: Water Section

The next phase of the color layout was to decide what the water section was going to look like. When originally designing the composition, I imagined that there would a land section and a sunset/water section. The crucial part is to have the two sections somewhat overlap, but ensure that the water section did not take the focus away from the bonsai tree.

I decided that, by creating a dark water section with minimal shapes, I could further emphasize the bright section containing the bonsai. In addition, by using purples and reds (creating a cooler plane, the water section would then recede. This would push the warmer tree section forward.

The final color layout section is to define the sky in the water section. The plan will be to use various levels of grey and slight coloration of the blues/reds for interest.
