Paintings From other artist

The artist I like about is Lois Van Baarle but the name she use for branding is Loish.

I like her drawings because of the colors she picks. One drawing is have warm colors with a bright blue near her face.

Loish's color choices would be dark desaturated colors of red, blue, orange.  Mostly use dark and and warm colors and one bright color to make your eye go to that area of the picture.

Colors and Lighting for Illumination

Choosing color for the look of the environment can show a huge difference between a sunlight outdoor and the overcast light. the sunlight would be the main light, which any color would be bright contrast to it. The blue sky would have blue show a little on building and objects. The reflected light shows colors from other areas bounce from one area to another area.
