Color + Artist Research

Cochineal Red:

Georgia O’Keefe:

Georgia O’Keeffe was an influential modern artist during the 20th century. She was best known for her realistic and abstract paintings of flowers, skulls, skyscrapers, and landscapes. Almost all of her paintings are filled with vibrant colors. O’Keeffe most frequently liked using bright yellows, purples, blues, reds, and greens. While these colors are loud, they work well together, in turn creating an engaging and calming atmosphere. She based these color choices off of what she was seeing in front of her. I feel that O’Keeffe’s paintings are truly beautiful. This beauty stems from her soft brush strokes that create a smooth and fluid image and her wide range of bright colors.
