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.

I love the background and the way he used the blue line,
 sometimes it's shadow and sometimes reflection.

Harold Gilman
Re blogged from Abacus Gallery
Harold Gilman the English artist is one of my favorite painters, he is an outstanding colourist . The light and shadows in his paintings are  glowing. I don't know any other painter who measure up to this knowledge when it comes to creating color harmonies.He is also one of the few who uses pink .

Harold Gilman
"Portrait of Sylvia Gosse"



Do compare the 3  Gilman portraits  and look how the  harmonies changes temperature.
Compare him to the other artists in this post and look how he color wise is on a totally different
 and much more advanced level. It is like music some composers make harmonies that are outstanding
 and in a way unrealistic because they are so fare from what everyone else do.
No automation in it, this is created rather than recreated.
