This week we continued to work on still life, but this time with the addition of color. Thomas and I both enjoy working with color, both in graphic design and in art. Thomas has a great intuition for color, but for me, it has sometimes been challenging. The topic of ‘color’ will continue for a while because it is vast and one I feel will take years to master.
I asked, “When working with color what goes through your mind.” Thomas responded by saying, “Contrast and how the colors dance and mingle together.” – and I have to agree.
When the colors are married sort of speak it gives your piece life, allowing your eye to dance across the painting. Thus, this week I have tried three different color palettes. See my results below.
