Midsummer is nearly here. This picture is one I painted a couple of years ago. The title came after the picture... as is often the case! Naming artworks can be a tricky business. How much should one influence the looker and how much should one leave unsaid?
I used a number of different blues to make this piece of work - indigo, ultra-marine, turquoise, cerulean....... In the past blue pigments could be difficult to obtain and very expensive. I am lucky to have such a choice.
