Article

Since I have been on this jag lately about color, I thought you would enjoy this article by Allan Swinson: http://www.cagzine.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=187&Itemid=77 on how artist create their own color theories every day.

For now, on this snowy day, I am off to my studio...maybe some more snow photos tomorrow :)

Very interesting article.

Especially liked the statement about those artists who leave color theory behind and paint "what feels good" as being more creative. May we all strive to paint what feels good,wherever those colors sit on the wheel.

Babs, I also thought that was great! It is interesting, I have always say to my interior design students (I tutor for a British school from time to time) once they learn the basics of color theory they will be off and running with lots of ideas. And I think that is part of being creative, don't you? If we stick with the theory, then everything would be the same old deal all of the time. And doing that doesn't an artist make! :) Thanks so much, Babs! Your insights are always fun to play around with...

Artists should be on the cutting edge of color schemes. They can extend the power of color in any composition really.

They sure can...

Thanks Brad!
