Softness & Strength, Chromatic & Contexual

Chanson

Chanson Collection
Liz Muir
Chanson is a lyrical group of paintings with soft colours and movement that is typical in music.
 
This series is designed to reflect on the changing seasons. The colours and tones are slightly different and the movement is fresher, the yellows paler and more violet is used.
 
These first two paintings reflect the change from Summer to Winter.

Why choose the colours?

Chanson is a lyrical group of paintings with soft colours and movement that is typical in music. Violet works nicely with yellow and green, showing movement and energy.

How I prepared for Collection?

The collection comes together as I start to build the works up as they start to look balanced with each other and blend making a whole. I use several easels so I can watch the works progress.

What were my emotions?

Calmness, energy, happiness, are my feelings when I am painting. My studio is surrounded by garden with light pouring in through windows creating a good environment for thought and reflection on the progress of the works.
