Last year I was surprised when I fell in love with orange and blue. Recently, I fell deeply in love with turquoise and raspberry. And now another surprise - lilac.
Lilac is obsessing me. But how to reconcile this color with turquoise? These thoughts, as well as a purple pillow I spotted (but did not buy) occupied my mind as I worked on this painting last night. I think more paint will be added, but I couldn't help but experiment with placement. I went to my stash and pulled out a studio piece.
Then I added my turquoise vase from Target and a lilac vase from India bought at a garage sale.
The pink and orange swirly pillow will definitely be edited out. I love it though, so it can go on my bed.
Leave it to Holly at Decor8. She finds something to inspire me on a daily basis. Last week I discovered the fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier via her wonderful blog.
These colors have been haunting me! How gorgeous. Not really saturated, but sort of washed saturated. And look at that picture on the bottom right. Purple lips, fuchsia outfit, turquoise and red background! Amazing! And somehow he's achieved a softness with very dramatic colors. A fine accomplishment indeed.
