colour experience

expressing the spirit and soul through color

In my fifth painting, we continue to learn more about the wet method painting technique. I am becoming more confident in achieving the look I want as I am starting to understand the nature of the watercolors. In this painting, only four colors are modulated: green, peach-blossom, white, and black. These four colors create a cyclical interplay that has a deeper, soulful meaning.

They express themsleves in the following way:

Green represents the lifeless image of the living,

Peach-blossom represents the living image of the soul,

White or light represents the soul's image of the spirit,

Black represents the spiritual image of the lifeless.
