As we come out of our winter shells, we reach for the sun’s warmth now more than ever. So, too, does the sunflower. It rises with the sun, tilting toward its bright yellow light. As it moves across the sky, the sunflower’s bloom moves with it.
In the stress of our day-to-day lives, it’s all too rare to stop and appreciate the sunset. It’s a shame, too — because there’s nothing quite like taking a moment to feel the day’s worries fade with the warm light as your mind and body adjust to the rhythm of the evening.
Often thought of as a solemn color—think graduation gowns, funeral attire, judges’ robes, you get the picture—black is deeply expressive. After all, it wouldn’t be the go-to color for life’s big occasions if it weren’t.

The discovery of a deep, vivid green by Swedish chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele in 1775 led to a fashion craze lasting for more than a century. From the start, Scheele knew that the pigment he had developed was highly poisonous. But he also realized that it was unlike any other green pigment available on the market. #paintings #colorhistory #artist #green Decoration, Alphonse Mucha, Art Nouveau, Art Deco Print, Victorian, Vintage Wall Art, Art Nouveau Poster Vintage, Art Nouveau Poster

In a sense, the name “forest green” is a misnomer, because as artists well know, leaves and mosses are never a single color, much less a single value. Nevertheless, forest green does evoke the overall impression of foliage—the sort of thick canopy that can block midday sun during a summer hike through the woods. #forestgreen #green #colorhistory #artist #painting Architecture, Nature, Outdoor, Moss, Plant Leaves, Plant, Spring, Forest Green

Midnight blue is instantly associated with great expanses of night sky. Gazing at the world’s evening cover is an exercise both inspiring and overwhelming; it’s certainly innately human, and the blue spaces between the bright stars have been the source of many a philosopher’s conundrum and epiphany. The color seems to foster introspection. #midnightblue #artist #painting #colorhistory Van Gogh Art, Famous Art, Van Gogh Paintings, Framed Oil Painting, Van Gogh, Painting Reproductions

Plenty of modern artists have been gifted with a flair for the dramatic, and Niki de Saint Phalle (1930–2002) could hold her own with the best of them. The French sculptor and multidisciplinary artist created a brightly colored cast of characters over the course of her long career, and both she and her work possessed an unmistakably theatrical energy. #arthistory #artist #color Frida Kahlo, Cindy Sherman, Studio, Joan Mitchell, Willem De Kooning, Georges Braque, De Kooning

The art world is built on copying, so why don't we talk about creating master copies more? It is a powerful way of making art that brings you closer to the art you love!   It is an excellent way to closely study and evaluate incredible artwork. It was a widespread method during the 16th and 17th centuries. And copying allows artists then and now to demonstrate their growing ability to draw and render. #artistsnetwork #Mastercopy #egonschiele #Rembrandt Gustav Klimt, Artists, Portraits, Gouache, Painting & Drawing, Egon Schiele, Paul Klee
