Yes, blue leaning toward turquoise is my favorite color. I posted about THE vase found in an Italian antique shop here. Such depth of color and intricacy of design.
Quite unexpectedly, I ran into several striking pieces of fine craftsmanship in a Hammamet brocante that took my breath away.
A pedestal and large bowl with a diameter of about 18"/45cm stood in stately splendor.
A set of pedestals and bowls, however, nearly brought me to my knees.
Despite a thick layer of dust, the depth of color shines through.I would have taken these home if I could have. The proprietor certainly didn't have much respect for these lovely objects covered in dust. However, he had a fair idea of their worth--he wanted about $4,000 for the set. Gulp.
So turquoises and blues have been on my mind lately. I usually avoid using them in my artwork because I would put them everywhere. However, the intensity of these colors reflects well the idea of summer in Tunisia. Maybe I'll pull out some fabric from my stash.
