I've been trying to be more aware of my color choices as well as I'm making these tiny artist trading card paint studies.

This one in particular I tried using very basic complimentary colors of red and green to make the red hair really pop and shine.

Still a ways to go but I really feel like these are helping me grow in a short period of time. And no I'm not looking for a short cut — just looking for ways to be less precious and free to explore.
