To me, the drawing conveyed unease and the unknown.
I wanted the color to provide harmony: excitement rather than the expected colors of men and ominous birds. So I choose unlikely, secondary colors, not the too-familiar shades of pure red, blue, and yellow.. I used the same vivid intensity on bird and man to link them thematically, and added gray to the color of the non-existent background to push it back.
I like the result. Does anyone have opinions about the choices? (Click on the image to enlarge.)
