My story takes place in Southern Spain in the 1500’s. The tragic tale follows a lonely and cursed gypsy who longs for a husband. one night she cries to the moon to give her a husband. The moon complies and asks to receive the gypsy’s firstborn child in return. Her unwitting contract with the moon eventually leads to her death.
As this is a tragic story and all of the scenes take place at night, my color palette is subdued with no vibrant colors. The color scheme is warm and earthy to emphasize the gypsy’s connection to nature. The purples used in the background add to the gloomy and mystical feel of the night.
Compositional Color Studies in gouache:
In my first color studies the moon was covered, I made it fully visible in the final to give it more power as a character.
