Shades of Blues Are Present Everywhere
The shades of blues in the sky change throughout the day and year. Depending on the sun and the cloudiness, rain, and even snow. Cloudless, the day appears clear and bright or overcast tinting the world with a greyish blue.
Surfaces tend to reflect light. Subsequently, the quality of light enhances surfaces and lets them appear vibrant or dulled by greyish-blues. In cities, this experience is magnified through glass-clad buildings that mirror the changing blues of the sky and subtly influence the mood of the day. The example shows a photo by Victor Jakovlev.
Along the coast, the sea takes on this role. The clearer the sky, the more we notice being energized by the color intensity while being soothed by softer shades of blues. Often moods turn melancholic when the blue turns to grey-blue shades.

Diane Adams is the painter of Beyond The Cascade art print. Adams is a well known contemporary New Zealand artist.
Hues in mud-brown, moss-green, and grey-blue dominate the print. Here, a landscape in the Southern Alps unfolds. Cabbage trees break up the front of the mountainous scene. And the cascade follows a meandering stream that leads the viewer towards the snow-capped Southern Alps at the horizon. The overcast sky takes the chance that the sun can light up the landscape’s dull coloration.
Beyond The Cascade is a new release by the artist, who loves hiking and gains her inspiration from her excursions. Many of her better-known prints are testimony to her passion for the beauty of New Zealand.
The living room shows the art print Beyond the Cascades on the wall behind a grey armchair. Meanwhile, a green and blue pillow, with stripes and checkers surface pattern, accessorize the space. The accent pillows respond to the dominant colors of the art print.
Michael Smither is the painter of Rocks With Mountain art print. Smither is a well known contemporary New Zealand artist.
The print favors hues in grey and blue with a balancing element in red. An unusual perspective portraits Mount Taranaki which leads the observer’s eye from a front-centered close-up view of rounded rocks surrounding a waterhole becoming smaller and smaller towards the distant horizon. There a red tractor stops the eye before it wanders to the snow-capped Mt. Taranaki.The Mountain peaks proudly into a cloudless blue sky.
It is a popular non-limited print edition that beautifully celebrates the different textures that come together. There is the distinct smooth round shape of the pebbles and the clear transparent and insubstantial element of the water bordered by rounded stones. Then there is the snowy mountain top breaking through the clearness of the sky. Using the size of the pebbles in the front in the same size the red tractor appears in the distance, the artist masterfully creates the impression of vastness and resulting in a landscape with depth.
Mount Taranaki has two official names. The second name is Mount Egmont. It is a dormant volcano in the Taranaki Region on the West Coast of New Zealand’s North Island.
Here, the red color splash of the print finds reflection in the home decor. Two throw pillows in shades of the faint red of the tractor decorate a blue armchair. Both display a fragmented circle pattern.
