I have just discovered my copy of a little book containing work by Degas.
I feel like I understand him more now that I have completely fallen in love with colour.
I especially love women dressing...those rich, intense, savage oranges and reds teamed with soft warm linen whites and dark raw umbers.
I don't know i even painted before as I was so afraid of colour! It now makes me delirious...especially when I catch a bright colour in the corner of my eye..it is an amazing feeling...
p.s I think I will try colour studies before i even put pen to paper and draw design sketches.
