I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start.
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will.
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue.
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.
The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.
Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:
CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only.
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!
EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.
Really, though, a rando on the internet stating “IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST YOU CAN’T DO THIS" is absolutely ridiculous. At the risk of doing the same thing, "IF YOU ARE AN ARTIST" please don’t unquestioningly take whatever stupid advice people may give you, well-intentioned as it may be.
(This is ignoring the issue of the pretty blatant erasure of every…master…work…that came…before…that infographic…then? Yes, traditional color theory doesn’t exist and you have revolutionized it by just saying it’s wrong, sure, ok)

the downfalls of project based classes
I don’t know what I like most about this - the fact that his jumper looks fuzzy and pettable, or the way that he’s posed with the tree, like they’ve met in the street or at a restaurant and the tree asked to have its photo taken with him.
Maybe he’s nicer to trees these days, since the one that tried to demolish his house.
I think he killed that tree with his bare hands, and is posing with it as a hunter poses with his kill. He’s not nicer to trees — he thirsts for vengeance upon them.
One tree went after his mother. Now he is…The Treeminator.
Stop reblogging Tumblr user Doujinshi’s art holy shit she steals and it’s so blatantly obvious
This cute illustration is by Puriko. Here is Puriko’s full Pixiv profile if you like her work. Puriko says not to repost her other works to tumblr without asking.
Here is Doujinshi’s artwork, shown both by itself and with Puriko’s art. The bodies line up exactly, with almost all lines overlapping completely in line with one another.
got a racist response while applying to colleges in the uk, and the social justice in me just couldn’t not respond.
THE CHINGCHONGLINGLONG AT THE END KILLED IT FOR ME.
So fucking happy I got this picture at Katsu last year
