View Full Version : Holding back the colors

The colors have a tendency to flee the intention of the painter. Usually they seek to separate, and spiral out of control in a way independent of each other. It is very lucky when they get together, side by side, with their complementary colors. It is necessary, often, a rigid control.:p:p:p

You are absolutely right...wow this is nicely done. I studied it for a while and noticed that it does flow like a river with many colors complimenting each other.

Yes, I see the rigid control with the primary colors corralling the rest of the colors into the center of the painting! I really like your use of planes and angles in this one, Oriane. Wonderfully done, sir!!!

With colors it is like with people... in harmony happiness grows and in the picture with harmonious colors masterspieces are created... very nice manifestation of these facts... control is very good tool in both instances... but one cannot overtake over the other... then the disaster strucks... gorgeous colors Oriane, and you understand that theory is needed to achieve every success... sometimes it is so boring to read and learn the theory...but....:)

I kinda see a guy on a horse, holding a flag in this beautiful abstract painting :)

Reminds me for all the world of a bull with wings...rather mythical.

Speculations aside, Oriane, it is indeed very harmonious......

Whoot, Skylar. Oriane's work has always been an exercise in seeing. That's why I enjoy it so much. :D

Harmony, proportion, colours, dynamism, all perfectly achieved in this jewel painting!

This reminds me of my old Pythagoras set!
Had forgotten all about it. Full marks for both reasons :)

Not so sure of what the guys above quite mean, I guess I should bow to them all being senior members! I see a great painting with wonderful colours. Does this make me naive? I am happy to be a junior member and will take offence at any impending promotion.:p:p:p
