The different shades of color
Dark neutrals are used here to create a dreary feeling.
This piece is realism with bright colors that make it unrealistic. The colors create a fun mood.
The artists uses a cool color scheme in this piece.
Black is the darkest color there is, so putting it with bright yellows, greens, and whites makes the design pop.
Here the artist used blue and its split compliments, red-orange and yellow-orange.
In this piece, the artist used red. It appears that he was trying to create a warm feeling, but the trees are bare, so it is probably winter. I believe maybe he was trying to give a dangerous feeling.
Here, the artist used cool colors, warm colors, and neutrals. This is very unusual, and if this painting had been created 100 years ago, I believe it would've been done in one color scheme.
This artist chose to make the person black and white, and then brought the painting to life with colored splatters. If you take out the splatters, this painting would be boring and lifeless.
Most of this painting is done in a blue and green color scheme. Then you have the few spots that are warm. This causes the eye to travel across the red rooftops to the whitish yellow focal point.
In this piece, you have black and white, which is a contrast. But toward the left side, the white begins to turn orange. This creates a contrast, as orange is the complement of the blue background.
Here, the color scheme is pretty obvious. The artist used orange and its complement, blue, to create contrast.
In this painting, the artist used neutral colors, which causes the yellow square and the red line to catch your eye first.
The main colors in this piece are orange and blue, which are complementary colors.
Here, the artist only uses tints and shades of black and white. This is very unusual for an abstract piece, but that's what makes it stand out.
This artist used color, along with other elements, to create depth. The staircase gets darker as it goes back, which makes it appear to get further away.
