Red in landscape painting acts as a magnet
Same barn as in ‘Sechoir à Tabac 1’. Same issues. Muted colour (‘anti-fauve barn’) or heightened ‘fauve’ colour:
…paint a rusty barn & keep it browny rust , rather than let it go over into heightened colour RED. – Adam in the post Fauvist Barns 1 : Muted Red & not Heightened Colour
..trying to keep a barn door rusty brownish red, rather than letting it slip into heighten, saturated colour RED. With a painter’s confession – there’s always apart of me that wishes to paint all bright & fauve. Or least prioritise colour in a composition. – Adam in the post Fauvist barns, heightened colour…Vlaminck & Kandinsky
