In the Blue, Dancing And Swaying by tracybutlerart In the Blue, Dancing And Swaying by tracybutlerart
I'm addicted to painting silhouetted trees at the moment and to limiting my palette. Blue still remains one of my favourite colours, but adding its contrasting colour of orange has opened a whole new range of possibilities for me. I am still playing with different materials, and always will but the Indian inks I have used in this painting are currently a strong favourite.

I have used a mix of Indian inks, gouache, watercolour and pastel pencil.

My work is for sale online Etsy, Artfinder and artgallery as usual, so head over there if you would like a wee original, prints or greetings cards.

What a gorgeous blue synthesis, the glittering golden leaves help to elevate the whole. Well done.

Thanks. Colour is really important to me - it's where I start first, working out what colours I'm going to use before doing any work.

that makes a lot of sense :) Colour is so important in everything. (I tend to base my work on colour choices as well)

Just lovely. You use color in just the right way, and I love how the forms are mostly, but not quite, defined.

Wow, I love the color composition!

I think if you added a blurred out foreground, the flowers would actually sit in the scene. Now it seems like they are pushed out of the image by the background...? :3

Thanks for your comments; I'm trying to find a new way of working just now, and think this is the beginnings of the right route. I always find errors with my paintings after a few days, and plan my next painting with them in mind. If I don't see my mistakes, I don't think there is any chance that I'll improve. Onward and upward!

Thank you all. I think I'll be working on a few more like this, so keep an eye out. I'll probably have fun with colour while I'm at it though.
