"Bliss Blue French" SOLD

“Bliss Blue French”
6 x 6 in oil on museum quality panel
$200
Periwinkle blue is a favorite color of mine.  Obviously I am not alone in this —-  turn down any street in the south of France and you’re likely to happen upon this delicious color dusted onto shutters, doors, gates and the like.  And what always makes the blue so blissful is the addition of just the right touch of pinks and reds in the way of a scented welcome. 
 On this spring day, I am heading out to the market to pick up a loaf of fresh baked–what else—French bread..:))  Later my friends (you know who you are…:)) and I will share it, with a big dollop of creamy butter, and sip our glasses of Merlot together….and since it’s such a lazy, blissful afternoon…. we’ll spend the rest of the day curled up in overstuffed chairs with our favorite books.  And maybe take a nap….Eddie says 16 hours of sleep a day is just the right amount….:)  This is one time I am not going to argue with Eddie….

    Beautiful!! You know Holbein makes colors in incremental shades. I have a Violet Gray #374 that serves me well in the periwinkle department. It isn’t a strong color but it mixes well with other colors to make the most fabulous grays. I could’ve bought the whole display!ReplyCancel

    Thanks everyone…I am having more fun than is probably legal doing these paintings….:) As to my palette for periwinkle–Cobalt blue with purple dioxan and white makes a pretty sweet blue. I also sometimes use Radiant Blue by Gamblin colors in the mix. Don’t you just LOVE color!!!ReplyCancel
