Blended Death - Art
This painting is vibrant and colorful, and it creates a sense of excitement. The lines of the painting are curved, and stripes of color appear to be swooping across the canvas. The painting uses a wide variety of colors, yet it maintains a balance of warm and cool colors. Warm shades of brown, yellow, apricot and coral complement cool tones in aqua, teal, deep blue, lavender, green, and purple. The colors swirl together in a lively, fluid formation that suggests intense movement.
A focal point in the midst of the swirling color of the painting, a patch of white draws the viewer’s eye. Here is the painting’s most light-reflective point, the center of the colorful flurry of activity where all the colors blend to create a point of white light. This white segment of the painting provides a welcome contrast to the chaotic energy and vibrant colors that make up the rest of the piece.
