A Study Regarding Color Fundamentals in Art
At the Art and Soul workshop, I had a critique of my art. One of the things we discussed was that I could benefit from taking a basic art class. This would help me gain concepts of color, design, pattern, etc. Right now, I don't have any time for classess. I hate the rigidity of classes anyway. So, I'm doing a self-study on color. I have a book! Heehee and I will do research on the internet. I decided to do a series to demonstrate my new found knowledge in color concepts. This is my first piece. It is the usual funky art lady. However, I used complementary colors, lime-green/red-violet in this piece. I am not sure what the red-orange is considered here. I will be doing several more paintings in this study. I used Portfolio water soluble pastels and H2O watercolors for this piece. I did the funky lady because she is familiar to me. Next up? A funky tree. We will see what I learn from all of this.
