Description: In broken color painting one or more shades of paints are applied in distinct layers to impart an interesting look to a surface. Impressionists used the technique to great effect. By using broken color, artists bring a sense of light and energy to the painting. The effect of keeping colors separate can create a sense of colors vibrating against each other for a shimmering effect. Animal portraits provide a wonderful opportunity to incorporate techniques of broken color as Wyland so aptly demonstrates in his portrait of a mother and baby Koala basking in the afternoon sun. Artists tip: To achieve the broken color effect, Wyland creates distinctive brushstrokes of varying length
