Art Inspiration 12 – Make Your Own Rules

Painting by a formula or a rule you have created can produce some wonderful results in your work and it gives you a framework or guide to work within. Making a rule can limit the colours you use or how the composition is constructed. See Art Inspiration 12 Make Your Own Rules. for more details on painting using a formula and for an example to try.

    Beautiful results. Sometimes I go monochrome or use only a few colors or go black and white to good result.

  7. The color choice in this painting is very striking and harmonizing. I love the play with complentary colors and how the sky and land seperate from each other.
