Abstract
The color language, as a significant element in painting, enjoys strong art expressive force and produces an effect to evoke emotional resonance instantly. The color application of the western painting shares the same expressive way with the subject and simple color pursuit of Chinese traditional ink painting. Artists from both western countries and China are exploring the infinity from the limited colors. The unpretentious color language is characteristic of unpretentiousness, gentleness, reserve and imagination which are similar with ink's features. Since the similarity, the unpretentious color language keeps a foothold in the Chinese painters' palette and greatly matches with Chinese spiritual imagination's color. In this art age of chasing fame and fortune, it is the unpretentious color language that modern artistic works need to draw on and inherit. We need to review the color expression in modern eastern and western paintings, explore the infinity from the limited colors and develop our creative practice.
