Colors that are used in paintings play an important part in bringing certain benefits to human lives. Using the right colors brings prosperity and positivity in human spirits. Green color increases concentration, brings good health and speedy recovery for ailing patients. Yellow color increases appetite of grown-up humans and infants. Paintings of natural scenes (landscape paintings) bring peace to human mind and soul. Paintings showing sisters, brothers, mother-son and other related artworks spread humanity, love, care and warmth. These paintings bring mental peace and enhance emotional well-being. On the other hand, paintings showing violence should be avoided as it is likely to bring negative emotions in the human mind. Painting either taken up as a profession or hobby can have a positive impact on the human mind, body and spirit. The painter considers the canvas as his/her own world where they try to impose their feelings, anger and thoughts with the help of brush strokes. Painting improves concentration and focus which are considered essential to achieve success in any field that we choose.
Know what’s Real and what’s Fake
There are many sites which sell fake artworks that are cheap imitations of the real thing. We don’t say that one should not buy the replica or art print of the original paintings as they look equally well on the walls if they go with the overall theme. However, this guide will help you understand the differences so that you did not end up paying huge money for a replica and feel cheated and fooled.
How do you tell the difference? Each replica painting or artwork is based on a real work of art from the real world. Such fakes always have a visible difference from the real thing.
