by Amy Azzarito FACEBOOK TWITTER PINTEREST fatrabbit CREATIVE May 6th, 2013 Fantastic color. Naples yellow is a great blend of warm and cool – we just hope it doesn’t drive us crazy like Van Gogh! (We like our ears.) What color did you use for the complementary background? johari huggins May 6th, 2013 as an art director, i just love these little tidbits… Angie V May 6th, 2013 I love Naples Yellow – I use it a lot to achieve skin tones, I never thought to use it in landscapes…good to know :) nancy d. May 6th, 2013 just LOVE the history lessons I have been receiving via designsponge on the use of colors and what they were made of back in the day. first emerald green, now naples yellow, can’t wait for other colors to learn about. thanks so much. nancy duzinskas May 6th, 2013 As a art historian this information is invaluable also. thanks so much Adriana Gallo May 6th, 2013 A go-to for skin tones in painting, and doesn’t the name just make it all the more dreamy? Emmy May 7th, 2013 I echo Nancy- I’m an art history grad student and I’m loving these color-related posts. So fascinating! Sara May 7th, 2013 Makes me think of the story The Yellow Wallpaper! Perhaps this attributed to the character’s breakdown. Nancy Duzinskas July 2nd, 2014 I am a self taught art historian and this is by far one of my favorite subject matters. The Making of Colors, How they are Made, What they are made with, and How the color can affect a composition just fascinates me. Color is Everything…..White is the presence of all color and Black is the absence of all color and everything falls in between.
