help with hopeless youtube searches, broken color painters?

hi!
if you have clues&tips on terminology or names of artists painting
- oils
- large fields of broken color
- on youtube
would you please share? i give up now trying to use search on google and youtube, there's nothing. on youtube the tenth hit is always 10 ways you know your cat loves you and its downhill from there. over and over. the best result thus far was when i included "Rothko" as a term. there were two hits on broken color. (did not help.) oh and 10min of teens painting a black stripe on a brown board. "monochrome" and "tonalist" as terms don't help.

i want to study a (several) professional(s) paint large areas of broken color, preferably hearing or reading this artists philosophy. i'm on a smartphone, which has an effect in searches.

i know i know. but thanks for looking and have a happy sunday!

Re: help with hopeless youtube searches, broken color painters?

I mean this in a nice way: get off your phone and go to a real computer.

Start with WIKIPEDIA "ABSTRACTS", then take the time to explore each link highlighted in W.
examine the references and check them out. They will lead you to more information about abstract painting than you can imagine. It takes time.
Whenever I find something interesting I cut & paste it on to a Word document (withe URL) for future reference.
I have spent hours learning about many topics. But it took many hours.

I agree about finding a computer...you won't get the benefits of a search or a video on a phone.

Now...I went to YouTube and put "abstract painting broken color" in the search and came up with a number of videos about the subject. This one was the most basic...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6wByaqlNNs

Begin with that and look on the right side of the screen...there will be a lot more videos about the same subject.

I went to Youtube and searched for colourfield and broken colour painting and there are so many to choose from. Good luck

Re: help with hopeless youtube searches, broken color painters?

color field!
my situation is off the wall computerwise, trapped by illness in between two home countries in a 2G area trying to move here permanently, but dependent on the other country's signal for phone and tv! investing is unwise for now, suffice to say... due to a mishap at the supplier i now have a truly healthy dollop of free roaming for a month, exhausting every kilobite .

it's curious there was no hits from wikiart, have to surf there with email daily to correct.
but the colorfield worked! loads of perfect hits with no cats, and a bit of jazz .

thank you so so much birdhs, CarlyHardy and laf.art!

Re: help with hopeless youtube searches, broken color painters?

studied those as well, while i did not connect with half the paintings i saw, i felt it doing its work profoundly due to the use of line in painting in so, so many different ways. i'm probably more grateful for that than i realise, thank you KreativeKay!
