Can you imagine a life with the absence of colour? Surely it would be a boring, somewhat lifeless and depressing life to live. Colour is as important in art as it is in life.

No matter the medium, whether it be a painting, a colour drawing or a colour photograph, the colours used and displayed are often the most essential element of any piece of visual art. What mood does this colour scheme give my painting? What colour scheme best represents this piece of artwork? Which colours go best together to create the perfect colour scheme? Which colours should I mix to create this specific colour? What impact shall this colour have on the rest of the piece of artwork? As an artist, these questions are something I often ask myself.

Colour is an important aspect of day to day life as it is in artwork and I have found some perfect examples of great use of colour in artwork that express the importance of colour. Please enjoy.
