Here's the second in this series of color studies I'm working on this month.
I happen to come across this article in eHow Mom website about:
How Does Color Affect Learning? Although this is geared toward classroom students and children I think it's worth reading. Hope you find it interesting too.
Color Encourages Learning
Children learn and retain information longer when color is used in educational material and in the classroom. Eighty percent of the brain receives information visually. Color simulates the visual sense and encourages the retention of information.
Note: my scanner didn't want to read the colors right in this image and even thought I tried to make color adjustments in my photo editing program... it's still not close to the original print.
Desert Casita by Michael Obermeyer
Artist: Michael Obermeyer: A native of southern California, Michael Obermeyer received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration at California State University.
Michael's tip: by making quick thumbnail sketches of the subject you can determine the emphasis of the scene.
NOTE ABOUT ARTIST: I listen to a weekly talk radio program called Artist's Helping Artist, hosted by Leslie Saeta, on their March 15,2012 show Michael Obermeyer was a guest. It was a fantastic interview and lots of great information. If you want to hear more recorded shows just this link Artist's Helping Artist blog talk radio.
