|Mist Study in Blue and Pink|
oil/canvas, 11 x 14 inches
In keeping with my idea of painting small studies, I wanted to do a painting that used a limited palette of red (Pyrrole red) and blue (cobalt blue). I am drawn to foggy and misty subjects for many reasons. I can avoid details and focus on large positive and negative shapes. The simple silouhettes allow me to put my energy and attention on the colour. Mist has a dreamy and ephemeral quality that makes places seem mysterious.
I will be showing this painting,along with a few others in a group show at the Galerie de la Ville, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC. The show will run from Sunday, July 6 to Sunday, August 3, 2014. All are welcome! The vernissage is on Sunday July 6th from 1 - 3 pm.
