Showcase of the most beautiful rocks painted by artist Lidia Zingerle, winner of the RED WEEK event in RockStreet Collective 4
As you undoubtedly remember, few weeks ago our RockStreet Collective group of rock artists honoured the beauty of using the colour red in our stone paintings.
Astonishing patterns, intricate shapes, hidden symbols, love and thrill, they were all captured in the most fascinating painted rocks there are. Here is one of my most recent articles capturing some of the most beautiful red rocks posted in RockStreet Collective.

Each participating artist had the chance to be featured on Instagram every day for an entire week. At the end of the week, the most successful artists of the RED WEEK event on Facebook and Instagram were Lysa Mignot from France and Lidia Zingerle from Italy.

"I take all of my rocks from the rivers of the region I live in. I love the nature and because of this, I also use natural decorations such as old wood pieces to complete my artworks.To paint my rocks, I only use acrylic paint but no clear coating."

"My biggest motivation to continue painting on rocks is the smile on people's faces when they appreciate my work.
I usually sell my rocks at creative-expos in South Tyrol, but I also ship them worldwide."

WHY NOT USE A LITTLE RED? 2
Christine Onward talking about the symbolism of red and its use in creating art on rocks
Red appears to be the colour that artists have been using the most in their art works. It is suggested that the value of a piece of art will increase dramatically just by using red in its composition. Recent studies also suggest that at least 77% of the art works in history have used predominantly the red colour.
But why is red so highly appraised in the world of art? And how is this preference for red reflected in the art rock painting?
Here are a few of the most significant explanations I found when it comes to using red in rock painting. To exemplify I used a number of rocks by the artists of RockStreet Collective, recently posted in the group.

Probably the most common suggestion for the use of red in art is love. Being such an intense, “hot” color, artists have used red to convey emotions such as passion, happiness, or intense love.
But how do you represent love on a painted rock?
You may use the symbol of love heart

Flowers painted on rocks in red may also elicit feelings of love:

Red is such a powerful eye-catching colour that can make us quickly attracted to what we see. This is probably why, for outstanding designs, artists are prone to using red more than any other colours of the spectrum.

Red is used to reflect beauty in nature , as seen in the feathers of these fascinating birds:

Red is also suggested to enhance strength, confidence and optimism. Here are some outstanding decorations using different hues of red:

And some more red? How about romantic landscapes with a red sky at dawn?

I will conclude here, although the story could continue with no end. Red painted rocks can make for a wonderful piece of decoration. Being a powerful colour which triggers intense emotions such as love, passion, happiness, the colour that attracts attention and makes every piece of art more desirable. There is no reason why you shouldn't try it for yourself.
