Color is rich in expressiveness and symbolism, which enables the communication between the artist and the audience. Chinese painting and Western oil painting have their own distinct characteristics in the color of the painting. In different stages of historical development, the concept of painting color and the application of painting color are different. Under different cultural backgrounds, colors have different connotations. The differences in color application between Chinese and Western paintings are discussed in terms of color culture, color expression form, and color application.
