Pink Colour Theory:
Brighter pinks are youthful, fun, and exciting, while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red; they are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive. Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance and the blush of a young woman’s cheeks. It’s not surprising that when giving or receiving flowers, pink blossoms are a favorite.
Pink is the colour of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted. For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood.
HOW THE COLOUR PINK AFFECTS US PHYSICALLY
Bright pinks, like the colour red, stimulate energy and can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate.
They also encourage action and confidence.
Pink has been used in prison holding cells to effectively reduce erratic behavior.
The Workshop: In this one-day workshop participants will be shown techniques and skills in how to paint contemporary abstract ‘Pink paintings’. It is an extremely 'meditative' process where encouragement is given to experiment with different applications of paint using not just paint brushes but fingers, palms, palette knives, cloth and rags ect in multiple ways... including spray bottles. Painters will be shown examples of achieving alternative surfaces in their painting and given a chance to try adding thickening and moulding products to give varied textures to your abstract painting.
Duthy Street Art Supplies will be open on the day for you to shop to your hearts content if you wish.
