More "Rhythm" - A Series Continued

"Rhythm II" 12" x 12" acrylic on canvas
"Rhythm III" 24" X 24" gallery wrapped watercolor by April M Rimpo
I had so enjoyed the first non-objective paintings with a musical theme I painted in November I decided to round out 2013 with a couple more. I enjoy the effect different color schemes have on similar paintings.  The warm color scheme on the left feels lively and vibrant, while the cool color scheme is more calm and soothing.  You might find it interesting to read this interesting article "Color Psychology: How Colors impact Moods, Feelings, and Behaviors" by Kendra Cherry.

The left painting was done on a gallery wrapped canvas, so I opted to use acrylic paint.  I find acrylic works better on canvas than watercolor.

For the cool color scheme painting I made a gallery wrapped paper platform.  Since it was paper, I used watercolor for this piece; I do enjoy the flow of watercolor on paper.  To create the lightest blues and grays I mixed darker watercolor pigments with white gouache.  Both paintings are varnished with an acrylic varnish so neither has to be framed under glass.

To see my other non-objective painting inspired by music and instruments
