Mathematics in Art


Do artists need math? Generally speaking, I don't know. However to myself, the answer is: Absolutely. Mathematics is a powerful tool when I run into ambiguous issues during painting practice. I'd like to run a few analysis mathematically. For instance, I try to investigate the color temperature relationship between light and shadow. I use image processing software (Photoshop) to sample out the colors in light and shadow area. I get their color coordinates so I can compare, and then plot the sampled colors on the color wheel. The result can be shown clearly. I document the analysis result in my note book for future references. My today's post is one of my color analysis. I consider I may teach some useful math to you in my future workshops.

That was the perfect day, beautiful I recall...U is always spelled out you. You me the stars, that's how Heaven should look at night...letting it run together gives you a stanza, one long verse to project a beautiful thought or memory.

Now the point is his likes and dislikes. If he doesn't love abstract art, there is no point wasting time. On the contrary, if he has good understanding of abstract art (whatever) he will be the happiest even if the painting doesn't come out well.
