I’ll start the new year by showing an acrylic painting in the primary colors, red, blue and yellow. This is a difficult color combination to balance, since the primary colors all naturally will fight for the viwers attention. The result will easily become very busy on the eye if all 3 color are equaly represented. Hope you will like my interpretation of the challenge!

This piece is 98 x 98cm or 38,5″

  1. Yes, I think it’s all about balance. I love this painting. It glows.

  2. Interesting you have reduced the impact of the red by using black over the top. Interesting because I have been fighting the same primary colours for the last few days. I still haven’t found a way of stopping the red over-powering the other colours.

    • Thanks, I have tryed to neutralize the red a bit by using variations of brownish reds and as you see some black on top. But I think it all comes down to finding the exsact amount of red to go with the blue, depending of whether you want the red or the blue to be your main color, and that I’m afraid, comes down to your experienced eye to decide…Hope you will find a solution to your work 🙂
