Big Blue Painting Finished

December 12, 2008

OK, the big blue painting has declared itself finished.


Looking Beyond Blue
Acrylic on Canvas, 36 x 60″

I liked the colors in the version that I had before, but I just decided to follow my intuition and see where it would take me. I painted, sat and looked, and waited. Then I painted and looked some more. Then finally, after a few hours of this, it said “OK – you’re done!” It wanted to be blue all along, and who was I to stand in its way?

Still, those colors underneath all those blues are very much in the back of my mind for another one.

    I love the blue in this, with the azure and the green (as it appears on my monitor) and I like the depth to the front base area! with the underscore of deep blue

    Thank you Annette! Yes, I tried to use every blue in my palette, plus some greens achieved by adding lemon yellow. Glad you like!

    I’m loving your new things on Etsy!

    The colours and what does or doesn’t show through are fab! I’m visualizing the true scale and it must be awesome :))

      Thanks Bee. The underneath colors actually show more than in the photo. Those dimensions aren’t huge by some standards, but big enough to get a workout with the brushes.

    This is lovely. For me, the sitting and looking (and listening) are always key. Definitely “beyond blue”!

      Yes, Robin. The sitting and looking and listening. Good for the spirit. Glad you like it.
