Where's the Yellow?

Pin It

I am often asked why I don't paint more with the color yellow. At first I thought it was a silly question. Yellow? Of course I paint with yellow. But ... when I went back through my painting photos there were very few paintings featuring the color yellow. I also noted that my tube of Cad Yellow is by far the oldest tube I own ... and its really hard to squeeze out the paint because it's been around so long!
The irony here is that some of my favorite paintings feature yellow as the primary color. So ... although I am not adding "paint with yellow" to my list of goals (it's already WAY too long) I am making a mental note ... more yellow!
Can you guess which color I use the most?

Le jaune fruit du soleil... nous fait vibrer dans vos généreuses peintures.

When I think of you, I think of *blue*.
Blue, beautiful blue, in its many varied hues, tranquil, serene, powerful, full of peace, lovely blue....

I, too, think of you as using blue and more blue in many shades. I am also thrilled to be receiving a painting featuring yellow. The color is powerful.

Yellow always seems to end up being only an accent color for me - pinks, blues and purples being the main ones.
But I love your yellow boats!
