Glade Shade

Glade Shade
Watercolor, 8 x 9 inches

Nunjabi Book I

Busy in the studio here preparing for the maiden voyage of my new online course:
Basic Drawing and Watercolor Online. Registration opened last night (!) and closes June 29.
We begin on July 7.Click here for details.

Above is a copy of a smaller painting I made earlier this year. I forgot that I'd named the earlier Respite and inscribed Glade below this painting. I then discovered that I already made a painting called Glade in 2009. Hence, Glade Shade. Fascinating, n'est-ce pas?

I love this painting (as I did the earlier one). I think it's the palette — the jewel-like greens and turquoise — with the small aperture of palest Quinacridone Gold set in deep scarlet. I'll play more with this set of colors. But I love the painting also for the feeling of comfort, safety, security and peace in the composition. Something primal for sure. Let's go there!
