"Nearly Home" 12x16" Pastel
This past weekend I headed out to Eugene, OR to do a demonstration at the Emerald Arts Center in pastels. In an effort to encourage artists to attend my upcoming workshop in March, I chose a colorful palette of purples and blues. I'm not sure just why I gravitate to certain colors, but the cooler hues of purple and blue seem to be in nearly all of my pieces. Why is it that one will choose to pick a certain color scheme or rage of hues? I for one, think I tend to pick cooler colors because of one silly observation about my personality: I am highly enthusiastic! Perhaps it's because I have a fiery personality and need to "cool" it down a tad? Heck, I don't know what it is about the cooler colors, but I love how soothing they are. Calming to my eyes and peaceful. What colors to you prefer?
