As you are about to find out, I LOVE art museums!!!
But it is easy to get overwhelmed after looking at hundreds of art pieces and then it all becomes one big blurred image!!
I have mentioned before that I enjoy a podcast called “More Happier” by Gretchen Reuben and her sister, Elizabeth Craft.
Back in March, I heard one of their podcasts where they were talking about how to look at art. I talked a bit about it in this post, but couldn’t find the entire synopsis of the discussion.
I was so excited when I found the FULL LIST and I want to share it with you here.
Among her suggestions she includes…..
- Search for a detail that is easy to overlook.
- Look at the “negative space” (we quilters know what this is) in a painting
- In each room, choose your favorite artwork
My favorite idea, and one that I used while visiting art galleries this past week, was to look for the Pantone Color of the year…..
I spent much of my time while touring the Ny Carlsburg Glypotek gallery with my iPhone out, comparing the colors……
I found that my eye was drawn to paintings with this color or something close and it did add a layer of interest to my visit!!
Come back tomorrow and we will start our tour of this wonderful gallery!!!
