dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of different extremes of the color wheel can change the intended concept of a work of art. Specifically, what happens to the significance of the message of the piece if it is only colored using warm colors versus cool colors? How does the emotion created by the piece change when the color schemes change? Previous research has shown a connection exists between meanings and colors. Colors can often be used for symbolism and can be used to evoke psychological feelings within the viewer. For example, red often creates a sense of passion, energy, and intensity, whereas blue is often associated with calmness, security, and trust. This study is an art project exploring the significance color plays in concept in pastel drawings using warm colors, cool colors, and a color neutral line drawing.en_US
