Vi­brat­ing Colours

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

To achieve rich­ness in colour, place small amounts of dif­fer­ent colours of sim­i­lar value next to each other in a few ar­eas in your paint­ing. This makes them ‘vi­brate’ in the viewer’s eye. The Im­pres­sion­ist pain­ters of the 19th cen­tury did this ex­ten­sively in their art.

The key to cre­at­ing a com­pelling spotlit fig­ure is group­ing your shadow shapes into sim­ple masses. A sim­ple com­po­si­tion is a strong com­po­si­tion.
