Wassily Kandinsky

Wassily Kandinsky, 1866-1944, was an abstract artist who's painting I found online and have had a strong influence in my color choice. He was known for his choices of color, as you can see in the painting "Munich-Schwabing with the Church of St. Ursula", painted in 1908, in which he used extremely bright, contrasting colors. Kandinsky was inspired to experiment with his own color schemes after attending a showing of Monet's pieces, which included the painting "Haystacks." In the piece to the left in particular, the bright blues and nearly-neon yellows caught my eye immediately. If you are in need to color-inspiration, I would recommend searching some of his pieces.
