Weekly BobBlast Issue 373
Warm Colors! Cool Colors! What???

Welcome Back to Another BobBlast!
Warm Cool Colors
Paint colors can be referred to as a warm or cool color… any color. For example, I am often asked "Is this a warm red or a cool red?" And why is this important?

Whether you are painting a realistic or an abstract work, when painting the illusion of depth, we've been taught "cool colors recede and generally, warm colors come closer.

This BobBlast shows two painting samples on Cheap Joe's Kilimanjaro watercolor paper - Holbein's Pyrrole Red Light (WARM) and Compose Blue #2 (COOL).

Then, I paint a smaller sample of the same colors and lay them on top to see the effect. Try different colors to see the illusion of depth. Notice how the warm colors come forward and the cool colors recede. This is a simple, but effective lesson to include in your work.

Color! Color! Color!

Thanks again for watching and telling your friends! All my BobBlasts are archived on my website and my YouTube Channel. We post new studio tips weekly that offer real content, substance and useful techniques that work for me. And they're free! We appreciate your interest, questions, comments and support!

Some of our subscribers have asked about the "behind the scenes" people who make the weekly BobBlast possible - so we want to give a shout out and thank Bo von Hohenlohe for editing the BobBlast videos. Bo also produces websites and helps authors self-publish book. Please visit his website at www.bvhprods.com.

Below is a list of featured workshops - but did you know that I also offer private sessions in my studio? Perfect for beginners who want a crash course in watercolor or acrylic or for artists who are designing an exhibit and want to bounce ideas for content and techniques. I devote 100% of my studio time to you! Designed for 1 to 3 people - if you are interested or have questions, email kate@robertburridge.com
