colors of mythology

My galleries theme is color of mythology. There are many vibrant colors used to create pieces of art for the gods. These pieces in the gallery are of greek gods and how the artist interpreted them.

In this piece, you can see cupid and Mars together. The colors in this painting are very vivid and blended very well. The colors of the painting make everything feel very alive with emotion
In this piece you can see David grabbing the head of Goliath. This piece is filled with many colors. For the deep red face in David to the bright yellows in his sash.
This marble Statue of Venus might be just white but, the shadows give it an appealing color. Venus is sitting on a stump that has a lot of detail. The black background with the white marble contrasts.
This grayish white marble statue of Alexander the Great is very eye appealing. The motion in the statue has a contrapasso stance to show weight on one leg more then the other.
This statuette of Herakles has a dark green look to it. This could be from how the statuette was taken care of leading to it turning this greenish color. It is very interesting because not many are this color
In this piece you can see Venus with what it looks like two cupids around her holding a mirror. This piece has a lot of shades of red, which is known as the color of love. This could be used as symbolism.
This is a painting of Apollo and Diana. The colors in this are more earth toned. These earthy colors give the painting a very realistic feeling to them.
In this painting you can see Venus sitting on waves. The colors in this painting are very soft and give it a calm feeling to it. Further down the painting the colors become darker.
This vase of Lekythos has only two colors which are dark yellow and black. The colors are solid colors but they give off a nice bit of detail to the clothes.
On this storage jar you can see Achilles and Ajax. This vase is very detailed and very pretty. The colors are well painted and share a story.
