in a pop art or impressionism painting you will need to know about COLOUR...
PRIMARY COLOURS – a triad (3) of yellow, red & blue that can be combined to make a useful range of colors
SECONDARY COLOURS – a triad (3) of green, purple & orange made by mixing two primary colors
COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS - a pair (2) of colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel. When mixed together, they create a dark neutral. They emphasize one another.
ANALOGOUS COLOURS – colours that are beside each other on the colour wheel. A common example is WARM & COOL colour schemes. They blend well together and are pleasing to the eye.
SOFT COLOUR – when the tint, shade or hue of colour is subtle = sky blue
BOLD COLOUR – when the tint, shade or hue is intense = lime green
In your sketchbook, draw a 12 colour total colour wheel. Divide with a ruler. Place primary & secondary colours with 1 empty space between. Then add the TERTIARY COLOURS -(purple-blue / yellow-orange etc.)

(March 1853 – 29 July 1890)

Van Gogh was a leading Impressionist (also; neo & post impressionist) painter whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th century art for its vivid colors and emotional impact. He suffered from anxiety and increasingly frequent bouts of mental illness throughout his life. His imagery often included everyday scenery or still life and he mainly used blue/purple & yellow/orange colour schemes.
Van Gogh was not appreciated during his lifetime, it was only after his death that his work gained recognition.

“There is no blue without yellow and without orange.”
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”

(August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987),

Warhol was leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. Imagery tackled by Warhol mostly includes celebrities and brand name products. His work was popular and controversial. Warhol became famous during his lifetime for his work as a painter, avant-garde filmmaker, record producer, author. He was well known in different social circles from the super rich to bohemian street people.

“What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca-Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca-Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca-Cola, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the cokes are the same and all the cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.”
