Painting Attention Grabbing Detail

Creating the desired motion in a painting is not always the easiest thing to do, especially when the work has to illustrate certain features in a design. One method is to paint colorful, attention grabbing details; red is always a good candidate for the eye catching color.

The use of bright red umbrellas positioned in this courtyard immediately grab the viewer’s eye, and move them through the space. Because the red is a complementary of the green landscaping, they also provide a lot of contrast within their surroundings.

As you can see in the full view of this design of a resort spa, the bold accents provide tension and movement, in an otherwise earth tone color palette.
