Green and Blue

One of my favorite fabulous teachers at art college taught us this old rhyming rule: “blue and green should never be seen.” We were playing with colour combinations- yummy gouache colour cards spread out all over the place- heaven! Of course blue and green should totally be seen together- what a sublime pairing- trees and sky on a bright spring day, the waves in the sea- both blue and green depending when you look at them! A shed covered in morning glory- glowing blue blooms against a rich green blanket of leaves– perfect! And last but by no means least this mug from value village (whose decal our dishwasher is slowly eroding… Noooo!)…

    Kate — blue and green is my *favourite* color combination (though red and pink, which I was also told is a no-no, is a close second).
