Blue lazure

blue area

Work in progress on the blue side of the waiting room. The original concept from when it was last painted, probably a decade ago, was that the blue reflects the warmth and care of the nurses, whose working area is on the same side also. I think these attributes for blue, specifically cobalt, are referenced from Collot d’Herbois who describes cobalt blue as having a ‘nursing quality’ in her book ‘Light, Darkness and Colour in Painting Therapy.’
