Remember, Values are more important than color. 

Value in art is essentially how light or dark something is on a scale of white to black (with white being the highest value and black being the lowest value). It is widely considered to be one of the most important variables to the success of a painting, even more so than your selection of color (hue).

What Makes a Great Painting?

What makes a painting work for the viewer or be successful is that its composition, color, and subject matter all work harmoniously together to deliver a unified and well-executed artwork.

There are some basic characteristics that all good paintings have in common. Layering color is like layering learning. There are  many layers of learning – just as an artist creates many layers  of color in a painting to achieve depth or add contrast. 

It’s important to remember there is no right or wrong theory.
Art is subjective: based on or influenced by your personal feelings, tastes, or opinions. Whether an artwork is good or bad is a matter of personal opinion.

Remain Exceptional

You can find your artistic voice. Your artwork is a visual expression of your authenticity. It takes courage to pursue your passions, listen, and show what is within you to the outside world. Be real. Making your Art makes you feel alive; however, it also has the same effect on others. 

When someone is moved emotionally by your Art, they will desire and, even sometimes, buy your Art. Your Art is unique. Even if you paint something similar to our examples, no one paints the same way or with the same passion, colors or strokes. Your Art is a gift to the world, and your style is unique.
