Project 2-Winston


I chose to do a painting in the form of fauvism. Fauvism was a movement from 1889-1908 that had intense and vivid colors that were exuberant and non-naturalistic. The intensity of the colors was used to describe light and space and redefined color to show an artist’s emotion.

The colors I used were blue-violet/blue-green/red-orange/ yellow orange. I did use some hues, adding some white in the blue-green and the blue violet, in order to put in some more contrast. I think the only thing I would have done differently in this painting is that I would have switched the colors of the red-orange and the lighter hue of blue-violet that is the main background color. This also means that I would have had to change the colors of the top fins in order to offer some contrast. o
