That ubiquitous blue circles the world and is the colour of the things we so often find beautiful. It is the colour of the sky, the sea and mountains from a distance.
Blue as a colour is both peaceful in its light shades and full of contemplation in its darker tones. To make a dark blue, or Prussian bluey black a brown is added to an ultramarine blue. To make a light whispy sky the white of the clouds blends with the blue of a summers’ day. The inky dark blue is an evening sky, a sunset over the mountains or a deep rough sea.
Blue in a painting is essential to me it grounds and exhales life simultaneously.
