adding a bit of colour

ok so people have been asking me to explain things a bit more, so as well as adding my works for sale here i will write a bit about my thoughts and processes.

so my painting from the other day, starting to add some colour to the black and white, so i added yellow, yellow, is one of my favourite colours, Yellow is the color of sunshine. It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy, but sometimes it has a disturbing effect, black and yellow are used as warning colours, yellow is also associated with cowardice. This painting is exactly about what i have titled it, Bearer of bad news, i knew i was going to hear something that was going to make me sad, yellow and black appear as a warning, a warning of me to expect it, to feel, and go with what happens. I will not go further in to explaining the figures and words as they are just representational of inner emotions that communicate an overall feeling in the painting.
