Water cool and inviting. Tantalising.
Tumbling rapids, still waters, wild seas frothing, tropical waters of paradise, meandering rivers and lovely lakes in reflection.
These beautiful blues and greens, and colors in between delight the eye and refresh the soul.
This week’s topic for our class is “all things of water.” We are working with the Blues and what better subject than Water!
The paintings and reference photographs demonstrate many of color’s wonderful pairings. You’ve no doubt seen a few of these images. But not, in a collection presented with a ‘partnering’ reference photo.
Similar and United
Can you see similarities of mood, of colors, of depth between the painting and its fellow photograph? No, Not so much a ‘duplication’ but a sense of color unity or ‘kinship’ perhaps. They ‘belong’ to each other.
Colors at Play
Isn’t easy…. to get immersed within the loveliness of colors at play?
When I snapped these photos, that is how I felt. Lost within the gorgeous colors and patterns – amazed.
I really wasn’t ‘looking at the Big Picture.’ But rather the intricacies that lay right at my feet.

Color can lift your mood and energize; it can soothe and refresh.
Each Blue, has a different and unique mood, or ‘feeling’ to it that you can employ in your paintings as you choose.
