The blue Flower
In Germany, the “blaue Blume” (blue flower) stands for mystery and romanticism.
The greens on this painting didn’t come out of the tube. I mixed them out of my primary blue and primary yellow, adding a bit of white in order to make it opaque. I’ve read before that one shouldn’t use the premixed green out of the tube because it doesn’t look natural. So I made a mixing green experiment – and yes, it is true!
