Canvas Art - Opening Your Mind To Colour

Nov 18, 2007
Many people are unaware that color can effect our moods. Experiments have shown that color can change a persons sense of time, energy and space. The colors we choose also say a lot about our personality.

So why is color so important in a painting?

One painting can completely change the aesthetics of a room. The colors selected can bring warmth, energy, emotion, spirit, passion, and so the list continues. The paintings also offer a completely different look with excellent feelings and bring in many more positive reactions.

Color within a painting can set a mood, it can bring depth and character to a piece of art and is one the most important elements of any artwork. It can bring it to life, but equally destroy it.

Creating an atmosphere with your painting.

The colors you choose within your interior and the colors selected in your painting will make or break your space. It is important that they work in harmony together and are not fighting for attention. Is your painting to stand out and make a statement, or blend into the space?.

Think about the strength of the colors in comparison to all the colors already in your interior and how they will work together. Think about the number of colors you want to use, too many maybe overbearing, but too few may appear bland and boring. It all depends on what you are trying a accomplish.

Below is a short guide to what different colors represent and the energy they will bring to a space.
Green Calming, relaxing and nature.
Blue Cool, calming and soothing.
Purple Creative, spiritual and inspirational.
Red Passion, danger and energy.
Orange Warm, happy and bold.
Yellow Bright, uplifting and confident.
Neutrals Natural, easy going and comforting.
Pink Sexy, bright and outgoing.

Color Wheel

A color wheel shows the division of warm and cool colors.

Warm colors are said to advance and appear more active in a painting and stimulate the viewer, while cool colors recede and give a calm relaxed feel.

Buying a painting to suit your interior colors.

Why buy a painting to suit your interior, why not choose interior colors to suit your painting!. Most people spend so much time hunting for that perfect painting, just the right size and just the right colors to match their interior décor. Why not be so inspired by a piece of art that you choose your interior space to work around your painting. It would be far easier to work this way round then the opposite.

By creating an interior scheme first and then look for a piece of work is putting up boundaries. You then discard so many beautifully created pieces of work and are not being open minded about your piece of art.

A painting can capture your imagination, color can inspire.Stretched canvas art is a modern, fashionable method of mounting and displaying contemporary art, photography and digitally created images.

Colour is all around us and effecting us all the time, so don't ignore it ...........embrace it!
