Does the combination of colors in your painting resonate with you the way a chord of music does? Think about it.
If I tell you: mauve, wine, beige — you “hear” the combination almost the way we hear a chord. If I say: white, red, black, it is a different chord, much bolder and louder. Compare that one to white, red, and purple. How did it change? Change one note and you a totally different sound. Charcoal, pink and rust make quite a different sound from charcoal, beige and black. Do you hear the music?
How do you choose the color chords for your paintings? Or do you?
