More "Rhythm" - A Series Continued

"Rhythm II" 12" x 12" acrylic on canvas
"Rhythm III" 24" X 24" watercolor, varnished and framed by April M Rimpo

I had so enjoyed the first non-objective paintings with a musical theme I decided to round out the year 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 first 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  used watercolor on watercolor paper; 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 is framed under glass.

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