As a guideline for the colour palette I would use for requites I chose colours that exist within the original painting.

By doing this I hoped to underline the reference to the original subconciously.


The grey hair is to exaggerate that it is not a hong Venus.


I chose to use a yellow bathing suit in reference to the Venus’s blonde hair that covers up her body. It is also relatively skin neutral and does not contrast the skin tone of the subject too much.


The towel will be on the floor behind the Venus, replacing the role of the shell hence the shell colour tone.


Optional accessoires like a turquoise sarong or a shell belt might be added experimentally. (All within the colour rangne of the painting)
