Please read at a normal speed, not meaning extremely fast. ;-) Thank you.
1 - Bold colours are very bright, strong and clear, whereas subtle colours are not strong or bright. They're softer and more delicate.
2 - If a painting is conventional, it's traditional and not new or different in any way.
3 - If a painting is dramatic, it contains a lot of exciting action.
4 - If it's atmospheric, a painting creates a special mood - such as a feeling of romance or mystery.
5 - Abstract paintings show an artist's feelings or thoughts, whereas realistic paintings show real objects or events.
6 - If it's ambiguous, the meaning of the work isn't clear - it's open to interpretation.
7 - An intimate painting shows private moments in someone's life.
