Are you biased against color in art?

Chromophobia: The greatest conspiracy in ancient art

There’s also, I think, the heavy bias in art photography: That only black and white photos are “fine art”.

My favorite visual art in high school has pencil drawing. Sharp lines, smooth, detailed shading, no color.

I also did watercolor. It was color, but with shading and blending.

I tried oilpainting. I think a key skill there is mixing colors – and I was terrible at it.

What sculpture I did was made from items that already had their own colors.

So what about you and color in art?
