Color Inspiration

 Mary Harding  Heart pendant Colors inspired by Redon and Hockney

Ophelia by Odilon Redon

David Hockney Pool in 3 Blues

I have long been a fan of David Hockney's paintings.  It wasn't until I made the pendant above based, I thought on the colors in the Ophelia painting by Odilon  Redon, that I realized in my mind's eye I was seeing the luminous blues and yellows from a Hockney painting, as well. 

And now I have even more Hockney's to marvel at since he has been drawing almost daily on his iphone and ipad.

Here is one of his ipad paintings that I just love:

If you think you would like to try this you can use the ipad app brushes, just like David Hockney. It is available for the ipad and the iphone. I don't this it is available yet for the Droid.

  5. Wow. That is just a stunning bit of color inspiration. I need to get busy and make something this month for the challenge. But I am a Last Minute Lucy, you know. I love the departure in color from your usual palette. Very pretty indeed!
    Enjoy the day!
