PostSubject: Human mind and painting   Thu May 23, 2013 11:05 pm

As I paint more... I am becoming more and more convinced that the human mind/eye looks for the following in a painting. In other words the list below is what, I feel, makes for a good painting. 1 being the most important and 6 being the least.

1) Drawing, i.e. proportion, placement etc
2) Value
3) Intensity/Saturation of paint
4) Color Harmony
5) Edges
6) temperature
7) Hue (Least Important)

What do you guys think, how would you arrange the above list based on your experience?

Thanks

Faisal

I look firat at the area of most contrast, then
1 shapes (could count as drawing)
2. value
3 colour harmony
4 edges
5 Intensity or saturation
6 temperature
7 hue

So it's very close to the order you listed.
I notice that I try to create contrasts, and I struggle with not doing too much of it;
hard for me to resist.

Ah! yes... but interesting how you placed intensity much lower than me.. I am waiting for the other members to respond to this... It will be very interesting...

Interesting question. I'm having trouble organizing them using your words so, if you don't mind, I'll state it a little differently. They are not listed by importance, but rather in sequence of how I look at the painting as I develop it.

1. composition
2. interesting abstract shapes within three to four value groups
3. no cloning of shapes
4. gradation of value for depth and within each object
5. gradation of hues within each object (3 to 5)
6. color harmony
7. warm and cool colors
8. dark against light
9. hard and soft edges
10. balance without symmetry

Very intersting Judy... it is interesting to see how we interpret everything so differently.
