collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

Asleep, James Gwynne

I think the painting is faithful in capturing the mood , but reckon there are few aberrations esp with respect to light?
The light over the face seems incongruent? Could the forehead be so visibly homegenous? Is the light that illuminates teh duvet more powerful than the main beam of light?
Bit Baffling.

Uber, I've noticed that recently comments do not show up until the blog is republished (i.e next post or whenever)

You are absolutely right about the question of light in this painting. I was rather confused by the play of light here. Also, I noticed that the blue area has its own mini images. Likewise the belly of the woman has its own mini images. Don't know if I am just imagining those but I can see patterns. Quite baffling though.
