Valentine's Day Blue

Valentine Blue
acrylic on canvas
12 x 16 inches

Checking the date on the reference photo I noticed that
it was the day after Valentine's Day, taken on our
drive home from a superb weekend in Ottawa. We
never want to leave anywhere we visit, but we always
love being back home with our family, friends and
animals. So we weren't blue. But the whole answer to
this painting is the exact right blue, against the perfect
yellow with hints of other sunset colours.

More to come on this one. Big day tomorrow. I'll tell
you all about it tomorrow night.

Have a getting-the-perfect-colour day.

It is a beautiful, bright blue that pulls together all the sunset colors. It's going to be a lovely painting of winter.
