Of all my children, I would say that 2 in particular are as visual as I am. My youngest in particular has a strong interest in creating and she will often sit with me and draw or paint. She's the only one who will actually hang out with me in the studio and work on her own projects. It's like watching a 'little me' and very sweet. I will regularly tell her to use her 'artist eyes' when looking at objects. How many colours can she in one single colour if she studies it enough? Slowly she will catch on, but for now, "pink is just pink mom, and nothing more!"
Now purple .... it is the ultimate colour in my opinion. I see purple everywhere. It is the perfect blend of warm and cool (red and blue). It is in every shadow, and every ray of light. It has always been my favorite and my bedroom growing up was always a shade of violet. I understand it is also a colour that inspires creativity. If that is true, a childhood full of purple has nurtured a girl in love with creating.
As I have been working on the first in my series of beautiful women, I am again reminded of how much I use purple.
Don't be shy.. what is YOUR favorite colour, and why?
