To Ellen

This blog is made to the honor of my grandmother Ellen Elisabeth Thomsen who was a modern woman .
She was born in Randers in Denmark 1895 and died in Copenhagen 1976.
She had long salmon red hair down to her hips. It was braided and put up with lots of hairpins to make it look short.

A new post in December

Time runs and I did not find time for my blog,
but here comes a few interesting pictures for you.
Since I am very busy painting now and there are so few daily hours with good light
 I have to do all my housework and other duties in the dark hours
I also had more evening time to surf the Internet .
I don't paint in Electric light. The surprise of those colors in daylight is not pleasant.
The last year I have been attracted to the color purple and use it frequently ,in my new portraits but also choose clothes that are purple, a color I never wore before
It does not fit my hair and skin, but I can't look at the many purple variations without love.
Purple is not the most visible color in our surrounding, few objects have purple as their local color.
But I started seeing it as an undertone in  combinations with all other colors this last year.
I have for years admired artists who create their own color harmonies of strange unrealistic color combinations and still manage to make it look realistic.
Artists like
Christoph Ruchäberle, Harold Gilman and a new young american artist 
whom I discovered this morning.
Josh George .

This is a strong picture Josh George knows how to make colors glow!

Josh George

Very nice Josh!!!!

Josh George

Christoph Ruckhäberle

Christoph Ruckhberle

He is so clever!!!!!!!

Harold Gilman

The color harmony Gilman created in this picture is amazing.
Can't get enough of it! 
Some tastes I crave so desperately that I can get enough ,
Passiflora Icecream. Gillman and dark Rashberry clocklat.

Harold Gilman
Mrs Stanislawa Bevan (Karlowska)
Wife of the painter Robert Bevan
In some pictures she is shown with dark red hair

I could have added some pictures of Robert Bevan if I could find any with Redheads.
It says he was the creator of the Camden Town group.
 I find him the weakest of the painters in that group though and it is obvious that none of the other members could by fare match  Gilmans genius.
Found a small picture of Sickert which is rather fine.

Walter Richard Sichert

Again a Purple undertone even of no purple is used.

Edward Povey

Franz Skarbina

Harold Gilman

The purple undertone is still there even if it is less obvious because of all the orange.

Harold Gilman
The coral chain
Not red hair but so purple!

Harold Gilman

Portrait of Stanislawa Bevan
Again the use of brown grey and blue which gives a purple undertone.

Harold Gilman

I've shown it before , but it's so brilliant.

Harold Gilman

Louis Ritmann
Also a purple undertone

Toulouse de Lautrec

Merry Christmas to everyone
