Watercolor of the day ~ Mother of Lore

Mother of Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

In this portrait, which explores the evocative contrast of complementary (or opposite) colors, a young mother’s thoughts drift for a fleeting moment as she cradles her fine newborn son.

It’s another nod to Van Gogh, who used these color pairs — yellow/purple, red/green, blue/orange — extensively in many of his famous works, including the portraits. I’ve adopted the technique as a staple of my watercolor style.

Title: Mother of Lore
Painted: December 1990
Paints: Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colours
