Andy Warhol's "Shot Blue Marilyn" 1964

This is a painting by Andy Warhol. I am loving his use of colors in this piece. I think I have seen it before, but have never thought about why I liked the color combination. I now see that there is triadic color scheme using red, yellow and blue. I would never think to make a face red by itself, but when paired with blue eyeshadow and vibrant yellow hair, it works well. Marilyn is still so beautiful! The bright colors used makes this piece fun to look at.
