Andrew Wyeth + Winter Whites

February 25, 2013



“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape – the loneliness of it – the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it – the whole story doesn’t show.”

~  Andrew Wyeth



Andrew Wyeth, Fence Line



White on the brain again!  Maybe it’s the winter view of bark and white sky out my window.  But I was leafing through a beautiful book “Andrew Wyeth– Memory and Magic” yesterday and was drawn to the monochromatic palette of browns, tans and whites of his “Chadd’s Ford” paintings.  I love the interplay between the layers of white and neutrals here and am really drawn to the same palette for interiors.

    Thank you for this beautiful post. I love seeing the painting by Wyeth and the lovely colors they inspire. I think I may have just the pallet I’ve been looking for to use in my dining room!
