Painting Value, Hue and the Munsell Color Wheel





In my prior post, I used my painting to discuss the value (black and white gray scale) of the bottom shape. I said that the hues (colors) of the dark reflection under the bridge, the reflections of the underside of the bridge, bridge and the water were similar in value. I continued to paint keeping these values similar. I liked the large curved shape I had with these similar values. The large shape shows a dynamic movement rising from the bottom of the painting. In prior posts I have talked about the triadic color wheel. This wheel has 3 primary hues (yellow, red, blue) and 3 secondary hues (orange, green, purple). These secondary hues are made from the primary colors. There are other types of color wheels. The Munsell color wheel is popular among artists as complementary colors are more exact. Munsell added 2 primary hues, green and purple. This creates 5 primary hues and 5 secondary hues. In my above painting, I used the Munsell complementary pair, red purple and green. In the triadic color wheel, the complementary pair is red and green.

Painting's Compositional Structure, Value, Hue, Shape




I am currently working on the above painting. The hues (colors) of the dark reflection under the bridge, the reflections on the water of the underside of the bridge, bridge and the water are similar in value (black and white gray scale). As I continue to work on my painting I am keeping these values similar. I like the large curved shape I have created with these similar values. I feel the large shape shows a dynamic movement rising from the bottom of the painting.

Painting "Rainy Day Street", Value, Temperature & Compositional Structure



This is my new painting, Rainy Day Street (acrylic on canvas). I described the mood of a rainy day in the city. While I painted this in an impressionistic style, there are few impressionist paintings of a rainy atmosphere. It was difficult for the impressionists to paint outside in the rain; the impressionists liked to paint light and color. My painting has a dominant middle value; the dominant color temperature is cool. The compositional structure is verticals and diagonals. I painted the sky with vertical brush strokes (not horizontal or oblique). I wanted to emphasize the vertical movement of rain.

Painting a Rainy Day Scene, Artist Caillebotte



The above painting, Street in Paris in the Rain (1877), was painted by French artist, Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894). When raining, there is no direct sunlight and there is little contrast between light and shadow. There are reflections on the road and pavement. The emphasis in this painting is on vertical direction with horizontal movement created by the people. (Essential Impressionists, Antonia Cunningham)
