This Abstract Painting

Red, yellow, blue and a few touches of black and white are the main colours of the painting.

A fantastic combination of colours but it was all about the process of form, texture, pattern and composition bringing all the colours together and creating a visual story that has no beginning and no end. Each viewer can decide what the story is all about. It is what it is.

I used the three primary colours, red, yellow and blue with shades of black hue in a few areas. Looking at the red paint, is it red-red or red-orange.  And looking at the yellow, it is more orange, could be red-orange too. It is actually more yellow ochre. (By the way, mixing yellow ochre and black can create some fantastic colour shades of darkish ochre).

Blue, looks more blue-green. A great calming colour between two powerful colours, red and black. Blue adds a nice balance with the help of a touch of white.

In the language of colour psychology, red is considered the colour of romance, strength and physical prowess. Red can also mean danger or threat.

Yellow, as we all know it, is associated with sunlight – the feeling of happiness and hope. It gives the feeling of optimism and well-being. It is actually one of my favourite colours and I use it a lot in my paintings.

White always symbolises purity, youth and innocence also it means simplicity and freshness. Black, on the other hand, is often used to symbolise mysteries. Black is also associated with power, strength authority and elegance.

Furthermore, black colour is the absence of colour. It is typically associated with the unkown.
