Rain's Thursday Art date - 2 colours

Hi Everybody!

For Rain's art-date I have chosen some of my creations which have 2 main colours in them, and sometimes a bit more....

Vincent van Gogh said 'There is no blue without yellow and orange':



Details from some of my van Gogh knock-offs:



Okay, here there are at least 2 colours:



I love this colour combination:




And some photos with 2 colours (some pics from Pexels):














That's all for today folks!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  10. I love your tulips, and agree so much about that delicious colour combination. Also, I never thought about it until I read your quote, how much I love orange and blue together. In fact, subconsciously, I have loved it since I was a child, yet would never call it a favourite until today.

    1. Thanks Deb. Orange, yellow and blue are really wonderful together,and always remind me of sun and blue skies. These are colours I just love. I just came back from a rainy walk along the Rhine. Have a wonderful day, take care of yourself.

  13. Greetings from Waterloo to Balconia-by-the-Rhine. This is a real burst of colour to enjoy with my first coffee of the day! The thing that is catching my eye, however, as I am sure you will realize, is the wide variety of strange and hitherto unencountered birds, some of which are quite strange I might add. One appears to represent a controversial hybridization of homo sapiens and a bird, and the images that might conjure up are not to be discussed in polite company! I can see that my work is cut out for me today, Valerie. I shall be bringing out all the heavy duty ornithological tomes to see if I can shed light on these oddities. One delightful oddity at BalconIa has no need of tomes for elucidation, however. It is always a pleasure Your Delightful Quirkiness!

    1. Hi David. By now you should really know that we here in Balconia-by-the-Rhine enjoy a variety of birds, animals, plants and people who are only to be found here in this special okotope. I rarely have company, and never polite company, so do't have to watch my mouth when discussing things! Wait till you see the rest of the bird oddities I have lined up for you! I'm off to the dentist now, so I'll wish you a happy day!

  16. Fabulous images for the theme... I remember that very first project, with the face - I remember loving it. And so many great photos - no surprise that the blue meadow flowers appeal to me, and the roses and peonies are stunning.

  27. I've neverheard that Van Gogh quote before. I hadn't thought about it, but that's really so true. I love each and every piece you shared, Valerie. And yes, the blue, yellow and orange -- a must1

  30. Well you really outdid yourself today, Valerie. I love Van Gogh and your takes on his idea's ... I bet he would love them if he could see them. All of your art and photographs are stunning ... some are surreal. You took my breath away to day ... in a good way :)
