Week 5: Color Contemplation

Leave a comment

This week we are focusing on color as the subject of your work.  This means we are getting abstract with the Color Field movement, and getting inspiration from artists Mark Rothko and Helen Frankenthaler.  What is your favorite color? What do certain colors mean to you? Or invoke in others?  What color combinations are pleasing to you? What happens when you layer a different hue over another? Or in a different medium?  Try a couple of applications and mix your media to really explore color in its many forms.  This workout is designed to be meditative, so take your time and enjoy the colors in front of you.  Feel free to do multiples and post your favorites.

Now at Wet Paint, all Golden Acrylic Color is 40% off MSRP (High Flow, Fluids, OPEN, and Heavy Body).  Mix and match your favorite Golden products, and layer in with other favorite colorful media!
