    Romance by Thomas Hart Benton is made with mediums of tempera and oil varnish glazes on gesso panel on board and is 45 1/4 inches by 33 1/4 inches.

These contrasting colors make the blue leaves stand out in this particular photograph

    With the backdrop of the darker green behind the two characters, their colors stand out. The backdrop accentuates their complementary colors, pale green and bright green.

    Visual elements are important in the learning process of a child. Children appreciate pictorial communication far better than that in text. Different colours are used to evoke different feeling in literature. There are inherent connotations attached to each of the colours in the human mind. This is helps to simply communicate the tone, mood, or emotion to the child by varying the type and intensity of the colour patterns; such young minds are not mature enough to decipher pure text (Sell 86).

    youthful aspects of our lives that we may forget about as we mature. Color is a very meaningful part of almost all artworks. For this sculpture, the artist chose a particularly vibrant blue. The light blue hue used is not only a common color for balloon animals, but it also is one of the first colors we learn as children, which further ties this piece to memories of our youth. This artwork conveys simplicity in its use of only one color. This is reminiscent of the simplicity of childhood.

    members. One of his works, Madame Matisse: The Green Line, more or less serves as an excellent example of what he was trying to accomplish in art: the use of color to express and convey emotions. The composition of the work consists of a portrait of Madame Matisse in the foreground and a background divided into several distinct areas of color. The division in the background is apparent in the juxtaposition of the mauve, orange and blue green, with the foreground divided primarily by the green strip

He won Young Designer of the Year at Scottish Fashion Awards in 2006 and the following year won New Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.

    Colors Emulsions are thin, gelatinous, light-sensitive coatings on film that react chemically to capture the color and shadings of a scene. Color film requires three layers of emulsions, typically cyan (a greenish blue), yellow, and magenta (a purplish red). As light passes through the layers, each emulsion records areas where its particular color appears in the scene. When developed, the emulsion releases dye that is the complementary color of the light recorded: blue light activates yellow

    Although Salvador Dali and Basilius Besler were artists in two very different times, there is a resemblance and continuity between the two paintings, Hasty Plum and Hyacinths. Basilius Besler created engravings of plants that he came across. He is considered one of the world’s first botanists. The engraving Hyacinths depicts different types of Hyacinths, with one being larger as the focal point. This larger flower is in full bloom. He made many engravings back in the 1600’s for the Prince Bishop

    currently displayed at The Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City Missouri. My first response to the still life painting was that of a very weird and bizarre, yet playful mood. The mischievous looking figures rendered with intense color, gave off a sense of horror without the dim dull color scheme typically portrayed in horror settings. At first glance, one could notice the eerie grin or grimace upon the countenance of each of the five individual figures. I believe Nolde rendered the painting in this manner

    The color motif extensively incorporated in the mise-en-scene of Vertigo by Alfred Hitchcock is apparent through many scenes. Two complementary colors on the color wheel, red and green, are repeatedly amalgamated into various elements of each scene. Starting with the opening credits, and continuing throughout the film, red and green are used to represent characters and ideas in order to reinforce the narrative. The opening credits set the tone for the rest of the film by introducing the color red

The patterns consist mainly of polka dots on the back, neck, tail, and face; curved lines on the legs, neck, and underside; and triangular shapes on the front legs and sides.

    since the background from the center is mirrored on both sides. With that, it also uses the same color on both sides making it more balanced and equal. The principle of emphasis and focal point are the last principles of art that I have applied to this artwork. The emphasis in this artwork is basically on the woman who is playing the cello. Since the background is symmetrical and painted using the same color, the object in the center (woman) is supposed to hold the viewer's attention. The woman is basically
