Painters Tip

Understanding Color

Understanding the properties of color doesn't do much good unless you can put color to practical use.

Color can be used in several ways, including:

1. To give spacial quality to the pictorial field.
Color can supplement or substitute for value differences to give volume.
2. Color can create interest through the counter balance of movement in pictorial space.
3. To create mood and symbolize ideas.
4. To serve as a vehicle for the expression of mood.
5. To direct attention in a composition.
6. To accomplish aesthetic appeal through color relationships and harmonies.
7. To identify objects by describing their appearance.

I have found doing actual paintings in color mixing to be far more valuable than doing color swatches.
