Color palette and painting tools

Each mission uses two main colors from the corporate palette of 9. I challenged myself to play with a reduced palette of 5 for each illustration. Two main colors + three that combines harmoniously.

The experience painting with acrylic markers was truly spectacular. The texture and boldness of color accomplished with these materials made each of the pieces come to life.
