Sometimes, the peaceful places may only be found where we ourselves deliberately, create it.
I’ve turned the news, off. I’ve turned “realism” off.
For a moment.
And reached for my Cobalt Teal Blue.
Relax With Cobalt Teal Blue pg50
Let color, Let Cobalt Teal Blue soothe and rest your mind….. for A Moment.
I don’t want realism.
I don’t want that Tightness.
I don’t want Anything that makes me think I’m not getting it
‘just right’ or
‘just like The Photo.’
I want to relax in Peace with cobalt teal blue.
Give me a moment, will you?
The news, the realism, its all going to be waiting regardless.
The painting is full of soft gentle edges.
Probably about 90% of this image is soft and blurred edges.
That is the key.
Those soft and gently blurred edges.
They are Restful.
They Give Peace.
A few rough and broken edges.
Perhaps, 2% I’d guess.
Broken edges aren’t really soft blurry edges, yet they do provide some ‘definition.’ Its not as clear, as defined of course as the super sharp edges and so the broken edges serve as that ‘in between’ edge. A transitional edge. Very useful to know and to use.
The image has barely any hard, sharp shards of pointy edges to poke me with.
The hard edges that do exist, serve a function.
To bring the viewer in, to that focal area.
Those hard edges take up maybe 1% of the image.
Enough. But not too much.
Additionally, you might note… that the hard edges are set and used amongst curved lines and forms.
Not stiff tight angles and rigid straight lines.
(Those, lead many beginners – to be even more rigid and tight, and less relaxed.)
Color and Edges
So it was primarily with color and edges I was able to create an atmosphere of relaxation.
Simplicity of design, helped as well.
I’ve created several more acrylic abstracts with cobalt teal blue pg50 that I’ll post later in the week.
A week of cool and inviting, relaxing and peacefulness in cobalt teal blue will be lovely.
