Lately, I have been embracing the power and the magic of white in my art and it is so addicting. I have been adding white in the form of white drips, white text on colored backgrounds (in found magazine images), and of course, white birds as in this Peking duck.

Magic of white
|the red dot means SOLD!|
Was it the magic of white that drew everyone to this happy duck during my open studio last week? It was one of the first paintings that sold. Everyone who came in after wanted to collect the art as well. (prints available on etsy and imagekind)
White is for angels
White is often associated with purity, cleanliness, and virtue. Like an angel, the duck looks out onto the room and protects all with his magical powers. The dominant colors are teal blue, lime green and white and there is a gingham brown ribbon that runs along the horizon line.

How the colors in the art calm you down
The lime green evokes positive feelings of nature while the aqua blue provides a calming affect. The brown ribbon grounds you making you feel safe. It is important to me that the art makes you feel both happy and calm at the same time. How does the art make you feel?

What a beautiful artwork! You are so creative. I wish I could paint as well.
This is a beautiful piece of art. I love the duck and would totally put this in my kitchen
I love this piece of art. The duck is just adorable! I have also never thought about the use of white in a painting before until now.
I have never considered color in art his much! I think it adds so much to your take away from it. Another perspecitve!
This is an amazingly gorgeous piece of art indeed. I never thought of the colors in art in this way before but it totally makes sense. Thanks for sharing.
Your art is so beautiful! I love how you've been using white to draw people into the main subject of the picture, very clever. You have a great talent.
Love the white across the top of the painting. It really draws your eye in to see the whole picture.
This reminds me of one of our favorite books, "Mix it up" by Herve Tullet. In it, the reader is asked to use his or her finger to mix colors on the page, and there is a section dedicated to adding white and how it lightens up the other colors. Look into it if you haven't read the book already!
I love the duck picture, it's so fun! I really enjoy learning about different types of art and styles on your site! You're very talented!
This artwork is pretty cool. The background is so colorful and then there is this specks of white on the top and not to mention the duck. The duck looks like its popping out of something. Pretty interesting, huh?!
Wow, it's no wonder that your duck painting was the first to sell, it is just beautiful! I agree that there should be some white in art, it really makes the other colors pop!
That artwork is so amazing! That duck looks like its standing right there.
That is absolutely beautiful! I love how the duck looks against they background you used.
I love artwork. This is awesome and would be great in a nice brightly decorated room.
I love white in any artwork. For me, it's calming and give the eye a place to rest. It seems to increase the vibrancy of the other colours too!
What beautiful artwork! I do not have a creative bone in my body when it comes to creating art like that, but I love seeing the craft in others, and you surely have it!
That is a lovely painting. My mother and sister are artists, but sadly that talent passed right over me.
