Somewhere Out There by Coty Schwabe


The Use of Yellow

I’m just gonna lay this out there:

I used to HATE the color yellow.

I dunno why. I just didn’t think it was that great of a color.

But over the last year of painting, I’ve kinda developed a fondness for it.

In comparison to it’s primary counterparts, it’s not as aggressive as red, but it’s more vibrant than blue. Also, a soft shade of yellow can pull a piece together, whilst a bold shade of it can stand out above everything else.

It really is a much better color than I gave it credit for.

A Color Scheme that Leaves an Impression

The color scheme of black, white and yellow is one I’ve explored a few times before, so it was no stranger to me.

What you may NOT notice is the fact that there are actually two shades of yellow in this piece.

It may be difficult to distinguish, but the easiest place to sere it is in the thick, solid lines that run the length of the center of the painting. If you zoom in you can see the subtle difference in the hues.

I’ve become such a fan of yellow, that I doubled down on it (lol).

Somewhere Out There

The reason for the name on this one is due to the fact that this piece reminds of a remote, broken down road somewhere. An abandoned highway maybe? Or a forgotten area?

The scrapes are cracks in the asphalt and the road appears to dissipate into nothingness, just as it had appeared.

Where does it lead? I couldn’t tell you if I wanted.

But maybe you should buy it and tell me. 🙂
