It's ALL about
Color can be your most powerful design element if you learn to use it effectively.
Much research and experimentation has been done on COLOR.
With colors you can set a mood, attract attention, or make a statement. You can use color to energize, or to cool down.
That being said, you may want to think carefully on the type of color scheme you choose for your next painting.
Painting is all about harmony.
Harmony in a painting is when the arrangement of colors and objects are pleasing to the viewers eyes. As a painter you can either put too much into a painting or not enough. If your painting is too chaotic you may scare the viewer away. On the other hand, if your painting lacks something, it may be perceived as boring, and your viewer will not be engaged, so it's important to have balance in your color arrangements.
