Children reveling in the uniqueness of a rain shower.
I wanted to capture the happiness of celebrating the small stuff. Particularly at this time of disquiet and upheaval.
The rich colours of Cyan.
Apparently, Michelangelo, his first painting “The Holy Family” when he was 28 years old used three colors, Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta. The cyan could have been Azurite, Blue Vitriol or Pompeian Blue Lake, a Ferris-cyan, Indigo, or Bremen Blue or a native Cobalt Blue that had a cyan color. It wasn’t Ultramarine Blue.
