Blue Mood Wins...














Well, I took my two sketches along to Bovey Tracey Art Society with the intention of painting the 'warm' scene. I showed the sketches and explained what I was going to do and several people voiced their preference for the other sketch. What to do? I decided to ask for a show of hands and, to my surprise, the 'Blue Mood' won by a landslide. I was sure that the warmer version would win the day.
Still, I went with the crowd and did this larger version in about an hour and a half. Stopping from time to time to answer questions and pause for the, all-important, tea break.

I am very fond of taking naturally warm scenes and creating them with a cooling effect. It is very different from what people are used to and that adds to the charm.

Thank you for your comment. It's interesting to change things around. Sometimes you create a winner.
