Artist's Description

Acrylic on canvas
Size: 40×30 cm

Here is the third in my ‘Hat’ series.

I used the same limited palette of complimentary colours as my ‘Green Hat’ and ‘Red Hat’ paintings i.e. Napthol Crimson, Permanent Sap Green and Titanium White.

Influenced by Modigliani, I enjoyed creating these sorrowful eyed, rose-bud mouthed, swan necked women. The background a bold stripe.

When I painted the chocolate brown next to the mint green it reminded me of delicious peppermint creams.

I’ve so enjoyed painting these women and their hats, I don’t want to stop here and may continue to add some others when I feel inclined.

It has been a learning curve using such a restricted palette, as I normally revel in using a rainbow of colour.

You cannot hide in a hat; you will be noticed, especially by men. To men, you become a lady when you don a hat—one who they rush to open doors for. To women, you become an inspiration, reminding them that they have a closet full of hats they have not had the courage to wear.
