Palette

Another warm blue sky day on the Westcoast and I am thinking through my colour palette. After creating a thumbnail page of my recent work I realized that I have been locked down in a world of blues, golds and oranges for most of the year. I start out with the intention of making a bold start to something new but keep falling back to the same tubes that inevitably end up squeezed, twisted and lovingly handled over and over. What draws us to like certain colours? I wonder if it is our surroundings(of which mine has been a lot less grey these days), or maybe it’s a need for us to express ourselves with our personal tastes. I am definitely going to push away from this trend and try to go to new places. Possibly. Maybe. Or, maybe not.
