Winter Blues

What is your favourite colour?  I can’t decide mine, I feel like I love almost every colour equally but whenever I start a new project I feel drawn to shades of green and gold. However, inspired by winter I took the plunge and painted this eight-fold pattern in different shades of blue.  I used Primary Blue gouache (Winsor & Newton), Blue Apatite Genuine (Daniel Smith), Prussian Blue (Winsor & Newton), Grey (ShinHan).  It’s been so cold here, close to the -40C for the past few days and all I see is white, grey & blue outside.  I felt oddly satisfied after painting this, as a sort of homage to winter that only just started… although I’m sure I’m not the only one waiting for spring to come back.
