Observations Around Colour

Updated: Mar 11

My colour palette has evolved over the years and mainly consists of blues and browns. Natures colours for seascapes and landscapes. My warm ultramarine blue complements my cool phthalocyanine blue. My raw and burnt siennas and umbers my staples. I get through a huge amount of titanium white. I never use black. Occasionally a rusty red or an ochre makes an appearance but not often. I try and keep my colour palette simple, neutral and calming. Reflecting my inner world.

I collect images for inspiration. These come from many different sources and I am always looking. I save them and look at them later. Sometimes a colour or colours inspire a whole painting.

I am always improving, striving to get better. It takes a lot of work as the process cannot be rushed but I can see differences to what I made six months ago.
