How to Appreciate Painting Works

    In recent years, oil painting has gradually entered the homes of ordinary people. People often choose watercolors, Chinese paintings and oil paintings when they decorate the walls of their residences. Especially oil paintings are more popular with people. To appreciate oil paintings, you must consider the following four elements.

    One, composition. Composition is an important factor in the formal beauty of a work. While satisfying people's aesthetic needs, it also conveys some kind of thought. Appreciators can get or calm or stabilize or tilt or suppress feelings from different compositions.

    Second,content. This is also one of the most direct ways for viewers and artists to communicate. It is easy to understand the joys, sorrows, and pleasures of the painter by following the steps of what the screen portrays, how realistic it is, and what it conveys.

    Third, color. Because the oil painting is rich in color and strength, it is called “symphony in painting” by the industry. Therefore, the use of colors by good oil paintings is like the good music that can arouse the sympathy of the audience. It can bring people into a mystery. The special realm - or elegant, or solemn, or depressing.

    Fourth, strokes. The touch is a trace of a paintbrush with paint on the canvas. The appropriate brushstrokes should describe the artist's emotions and preferences for aesthetics, and can also be sensitive to changes in aesthetic tastes in different eras. For example, Rubens is full of thin, bright colors.

    The free and boldly curved strokes left by smearing give people a strong sense of movement and a sense of dramatic conflict; Hals's portrait of a quick and flexible brushstroke draws people's vivid feelings.
