(33) Blue Cottage
6 x 8, oil
Continuing my yellow/blue theme, these pieces are part of a favorite "tea for one" set, made by Royal Winton. I really didn't plan to spend four weeks studying ellipses, but the more I study them, the more I realize there is so much more to learn.
This quote came to mind as I painted today: "I know that to paint the sea really well, you need to look at it every hour of every day in the same place so you can understand its way in that particular spot, and that is why I am working on the same motifs over and over again"....Claude Monet
