Summer 2007 Pastels by Victoria Taylor-Gore

This is a new pastel that I did for some clients that wanted a simple warm interior with a more comfortable chair. I think the soft chair makes the room more inviting to the viewer…come in and relax by the fire! Then take a trip
outside through the open door. I worked with the complements blue and orange in the contrast of the blue chair, blue floor and blue sky versus the warm walls and the warm fireplace. Complementary contrast always makes the color come alive. I also like to emphasize the continuity of inside and outside by an open door with no obstruction to the landscape beyond.

This is a new exterior pastel with a simple blue house that contrasts the warm gold hills and light from the house and also the sunset colored sky. This piece will be on the cover of the September issue of Enchanted Homes, which is a full color magazine that is published by the Taos News.
