I use the walls in my studio to hang paintings on nails to dry. As I put up last night's blue donut on the wall with other pieces I noticed a trend emerging. Everything is blue to varying degrees. Some more prominently than others. Yes there are other colour elements in the pieces but there seems to be an underlying blue connecting most pieces.
I know I paint water which often does have blue tones, but haven't really noticed this before. Tonight as I started a new piece and stepped back to look at the form, it too is blue. Of course it is a blue boat to start with so there's no escaping that.
Blue is likely one of the most universally favoured colours and I'm no different. Also as a child, I always was dressed in blue and still love to wear blue . Maybe its engrained, maybe all my paintings will always be blue!
Do you notice a colourway seeping into your work every time you paint?
