Something in Common

March 22, 2014

All of these paintings have something in common. First of all I found them on Wikipaintings, second… Can you spot the second thing?

What would your spring be like?

I think I’d go for a nature scene (sadly I’m very unimaginative…). Of course there’ be lots of greens and probably whites, as I’d concentrate on trees in bloom (that’s a pretty obvious spring, isn’t it?). Yet looking at these paintings above, I think it would be nice to try and experiment with some other colours, maybe even blues (who paints spring in blue!?). It would also be interesting to try and imagine spring as a person. What do you think?

I guess I’ve just decided on two challenges – blue and anthropomorphic spring!

One last question – will you join me?

    I’m going to have a think on this. Or a feel – or perhaps sleep on it, see what happens.

    ok – I think I have an idea!

    I think I might join in the fun. The question being how would I embody spring. I’ll have to sleep on that one.

    one thing I see in common with the exception of the goat which is not really of nature anyway, is the absence of reds. So I ask who paints or photographs spring in red?
