Rudolph Project

So I have been learning about color and it was all about how colors conveys emotions.  An artist will use colors to convey a mood an emotion  much like a song. One of the biggest mistakes I have made in my art is to get so excited about a project that I don’t take the time to choose the right shade of blue.  The project was to listen to a song and identify the emotions and paint based on these emotions. I chose to do the Rudolph song because it is a favorite. So the emotions are about love, love for yourself, love for helping others, and love for Santa. It is playful, loving and victorious. Naturally I chose red and shades of red.
