This one's on tuther side... Thass English for "the Dark Side"! I like this painter's style but the over-use of BLACK really bugs me. His colors are dead - dead. Thought it would help explain my preaching against black to unbelievers. Attachment 28065

And a positive to clear the taste buds... This one's so full of color! And look at the way tactile painting has dealt with her ruffles... You can feel them!Attachment 28073

I like the dark one! It looks like a ray of hope breaking through the dread. Maybe the artist's intent?

Sorin 01-23-2016 12:59 PM

Possibly, and it could that the copying enhanced the darkness. But I suspect strongly that the artist is one of many who simply prefer the combos he created. Many do. Its like cooking... Some like it hot, some cool. Some like the taste of black. Such is for each to decide. My main drive is to try inducing new artists to first delve into clean use of colors & not act like a printer, which uses black to darken & white to lighten. Artists taste... Feel. Enhance. Improve. I see that painting as it could have been and am saddened by the loss.

I cannot properly discuss avoiding black since my favorite medium is graphite! :biggrin:

I do know when I was trying to gain a better understanding of color use that I avoided black just to force myself to think outside the box.

Sorin 01-24-2016 07:32 AM

Ah, but graphite & black ink is a totally different thing! There you're not talking about vibrations of light but levels... Contrasts.

This is a girl I follow on Instagram and I just think her pen and ink work is incredible. Obviously portions of each piece is done with a fine liner pen, but she also fills in much of those details with a liquid ink. :surprise:
