Colour Inpsiration – Mark RothkoPosted: November 17, 2014
After our talk from Helen on Monday about understanding the impact and significance of standardised, mass-produced colours on the art of the past 60 years, I started to research artists who are deeply influenced by colour, and using colours in their work. Having heard of him mentioned previously, I started to think about Mark Rothko and his work with colour. I find his work very inspiring; his use of colours, harmonising and blending them together to create very emotive paintings is very impressive. I find his work very calming and thoughtful; and I will look towards his work when I’m working with colour, and keep in mind how he works.
