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.
