Grey and turquoise

Bird tale
gouache on paper 24x32 cm

The past weeks I seem to be in a pale color mood.
The darker work have to wait, I need to use these colors now.

Acryl painting in progress, don't know exactly where it's going .
After a difficult start, working on this one has become very restful, the colors are calming .
There is a siren song in my head, although I'm not painting sirens (half bird, half woman).
That siren sound is very pleasant, not distracting on the contrary it helps to concentrate.
Is this all the result of me longing for the seaside ?
Or started this painting my longing ?

  1. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

    The mermaids, team work, sea beauty.

    Dabs of soft color palette. A dab of this, a dab of that, and the artist creates images, beginning first in her mind.

    Beauty work!

    Thank you.
