4 Colour con­sid­er­a­tions

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

When it comes to colour, I pre­fer to work with only a few tones – usu­ally three. Re­duc­ing the colour spec­trum in a paint­ing helps to con­vey in­for­ma­tion con­cisely. The viewer is able to read the com­po­si­tion more quickly, even at a dis­tance. Imag­ine the can­vas as a party, and the colours are people busy chat­ting to one an­other. The more people talk, the more dif­fi­cult it is to un­der­stand what’s be­ing said, or to carry a con­ver­sa­tion. Re­duc­ing the num­ber of colours will make your art­work less busy, and if you close up the range it should make for a more co­her­ent im­age.
