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

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.

Andrew Wyeth’s “Maine” paintings are, of course, another story.

    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!
