Today’s essential question: How can I pair neutrals and accent colors to create a sophisticated color scheme?
As you work on your self-portrait, think of how you can use color to establish mood and unity. To create a sophisticated color scheme, focus on neutrals and then add one or two bright accent colors for emphasis and contrast.
Neutrals are muted colors that go with everything. They include black, white, grey, brown, tan, and taupe. Correct use of neutrals will make your accent colors appear even brighter. Neutrals will often have a warm hue (ivory, brown, tan) or a cool hue (shades of gray).
Here are some examples of neutrals:

Today we will:
- continue working on our vector self-portraits, focusing on how we are combining neutrals and accent colors to create a sophisticated color scheme
- create a new blog post with a PDF of today’s progress, as well as a brief reflection on your project’s current color scheme
