Choosing Colours

I am so in love with colour! Colours and the way that they interact hold endless fascination and equally endless expressive possibilities.

Most artists have a few favourite colours that they incorporate into many paintings. For the last while, there seems to be a lot of quinacridone nickle azo gold, or beige and ochre combinations in my work.

I came across this article written with home decorating in mind, but I see no reason at all that these beautiful palettes could not be used in a painting. I am eager to try some myself. So many possibilities! I love #2 (featured here), and #10. #4 has been a long time favourite with many painters.
