It’s interesting how we respond to colour at different times. Sometimes I feel like a lot of colour, wearing an orange cardigan, with pink top and green skirt(you can’t miss me). And then, at other times, just looking at a lot of colour feels overwhelming. I went through a stage where yellow made me feel ill, but recently I’ve been craving it. Why? I don’t know. When colour feels too much it’s nice to turn to neutrals. I don’t think I could ever be disciplined enough to limit myself purely to neutrals, although I do love looking at homes that are all neutral. It’s very restful on the eyes, such a calm environment to live in.
I’d like to share two neutral owl paintings that have flown recently into the Winter Owls Shop. The first owl is entitled “Bookworm”. This is a sweet-faced owl who is obviously a big reader. My younger son said it looks like it is wearing an owl costume. Well why not? The second painting is “And as handsome as I am”, this is quite a self-assured fellow, who really is a looker I must agree.
A post about neutrals also had to include some other lovely neutral objects. One of the things I noticed when looking at the photographs below, was how texture and little details of the objects really stood out, when eye-popping colour wasn’t present to take over.
I hope you enjoy these neutral photographs and have a relaxing and calm weekend.
