Blue Review

Painter Susan Abbott has recently revamped her website/blog and has started writing more detailed, instructional “Painting Notes” articles on Saturdays. I really appreciate her insight. I especially like this one — “Blue, Bluish, and Blueness.” Here, Susan gives a history of the evolution of blue pigment, and admits to blue as being her favorite color.

I also recently came across this blog about the love of blue from Tina Mammoser, My favourite colour: pthalo blue, green shade.

Blue is also a favorite color of mine, if not my most favorite of all.

I recently reviewed my previous work and noticed that blue factors into most of it, and is the predominant color of quite a few pieces. I have posted a few of these “blue paintings” below.
