I utilize vibrant colors, such as shades of red, blue, and green, to help grab the viewers’ attention. The use of subject matter conveys the messages which color alone cannot portray. Color in this instance becomes an aid to my subjects/subject matter in what it is I’m wanting to communicate. Giving areas more emphasis by where colors are placed, while also communicating emotions through those color. Features of lines and placement of subject/use of space within a piece help to further create an emphasis. Lines work to achieve simplistic aesthetic qualities, while also serving purpose in guiding one’s eyes to further see the subject and smaller details in conjunction with both color and use of space.
