Picasso's Blue Period
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Blue Period (Spanish: Período Azul) is a term used to define the works produced by Spanish painter Pablo Picasso between 1901 and 1904 when he painted essentially monochromatic paintings in shades of blue and blue-green, only occasionally warmed by other colors. These somber works, inspired by Spain and painted in Barcelona and Paris, are now some of his most popular works, although he had difficulty selling them at the time.

Photographs of my newest creation, I do have to say I love the colours. I’d recently had a customer who wasn’t wholly clear on the colour scheme for her blanket. I decided to make up a sample incorporating some of the colours she wanted. Ultimately she decided she wanted a purple and grey ripple blanket. I decided to continue with these colours I had put together and ended up with ‘Serendipity’.

Here are a couple of photographs of a huge granny square blanket I completed earlier this week for a customer. Unfortunately the light levels weren’t great and so the photos do not do the actual colours full justice. The colours included; mustard, grey, lime, ivory, plum, raspberry & navy.

Yes it’s that time of year where thoughts turn to Christmas gift shopping. It’s also that time of year when it’s getting chilly and we begin to think about snuggling up under a warm cosy blanket.
