Red, the February colour

February 01, 2018

What colour would you choose for this month?
Red, of course, the colour of the love, Valentine's day and the lovers.
Aside from the different kinds of red, this colour is associated with energy, passion, warm, powerful, courageous, dynamism, stimulating, stir, provocation, adventure, magnetism, spontaneity.....
But too with aggressivity, violence, danger, antagonism and warlike.

How is made the red colour?
We have to start with the primary colours, so, Magenta, cyan and yellow. Red is a secondary colour, the add from magenta and yellow, follow the picture.
So, with three colour and forbearance, we can make the others.
And my challenge for this month is to paint just with red, yeap, with only one colour and all the variances. I think it's gonna be hard, I know but it's one way to learn and improve my painting.
Tomorrow morning I'll go to my favourite art supplies shop and I'll buy 3 canvas to start.
For two of them I'll use just red, and the other I'll add black and white.

I invite you to follow the challenge on my Instagram and Facebook.

See you soon, soon!
Be happy, be creative!
