Artworks where Color Greatly Influences their Appeal

This gallery is devoted to pieces of artwork whose use of color is a major factor in its appeal and uniqueness.

This painting's color comes solely from individual dots of color placed closely enough together to convey the color of the woman's face. This style was used primarily in early comic books and gives this piece the same kind of intriguing and investing appeal that said comics had.
This Asian piece uses very little color, yet strangely makes it more investing. The rare, light shades of color throughout the work conveys the landscape more clearly and gives it ore presence.
Another work from the Orient, this piece uses the contrast of the blue river and the orange leaves to entice and express the life of the environment.
Stain glass window pieces, like this one, relied solely on color to convey its message, lacking broad line boarders and focusing more on how the individual pieces of glass fit together to tell a story.
Like the stain glass piece and comic art, this painting lacks true borders and thick colors, made entirely of individual dabs of blues, whites, greens, etc. It shows so much from afar and really lets its pallet tell its story.
The varying size, span, and distance between the orbs of color are what defines this piece as art. If one looks hard enough, the color melts away to show the true face of this work.
As the seasons change, the trees gain new shades for their leaves. This piece conveys the change to autumn through the red and yellow leaves of the trees.
Each face in this work is individualized and expressed through its associated color, telling more about the person to the viewer than any words could.
Using an entire craft store's worth of colors, this piece relies less on image and more on emotion felt through its pallet to tell its story.
Many recognize this work of art from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where one character stares intently at it and at every drop of paint that created this piece. Like others mentioned in this gallery, it relies solely of individual drops of color, grouped together to convey a gorgeous scene.
This collision of swirling auras of black and red express emotion through the colors alone; the brighter, more exuberant pastels alongside the red, and the darker, more muted shades allied with the black vortex. It uses this to convey a scene of the two forces clashing.
The shapes and forms within this artwork are formed solely from the colors themselves, conveying the depth, distance, and size of each object beautifully. 
Another piece lacking solid borders, the majesty of the heavens is depicted through the bright range of colors used, expressing the joyous and easing realms of the Almighty excellently.
This famous work of Van Gogh is a prime example of color expressing everything. Though the sky is blue, the varying shade and presence of ethereal lights implies nightfall. The dark pillar to the left most side gives off a sense of overpowering intensity, but only through its dark shades as it is in fact only a tree. 
This piece of the gallery embodies how color adds, if not entirely incorporates, the appeal of a work of art. The flowing waterfall of white, the red waterwheel of the mill, and even the yellow woodland inhabitant in the corner are made more prominent and appealing through the colors each possess, bringing the piece to life.
