Colour and background

After teaching the workshop on colours last week I had a burst of creative energy. I read "Brave Intuitive Painting" by Flora Bowley and I was really motivated to try new colour combinations. I decided to use some of my 8 x 8 canvases on which I had painted backgrounds a few years ago...

Old backgrounds

New backgrounds

Regarding Flora Bowley's book, the review which reflects best what is the book about (or is not about)  is by Gemma

The chapter on colour is explained with simplicity which is great for beginners.
I decided to keep the book because it gave me inspirations and opened new doors for me.



  1. Looks good! The book looks nice too. I've put it on my wishing list.

  2. Super fun to experiment with colour combinations!
    I finished a painting on each background. Will be posted soon on the blog.

  3. Wonderful colours, Véronique! I love how books can inspire us and open up new exploration :)

    1. Received few new art books this week. I'm preparing for the summer, gathering new books and supplies to experiment more... Don't you love being an artist!
