Wayne Thiebaud

Thiebaud's composition is pretty normal and typical, but i like the way he uses colour and shading. In his painting of the gum-ball machine for example, he uses clear lines to show different shades. Also, he makes the shadow in orange, which makes the piece different and interesting. He often uses light, soft colours, lighter than the colours most modern artists use. It makes his piece unique within the era. There's something about his pieces that I find cheerful and funny. It's mainly to do with his style, his images, and his choice of colours.
