Phil, Painting

Originally uploaded by studiofoglio.
Here's Phil painting the back room, which is going to become part of the studio. We let him pick the colors. Ouch.

That's. Um. Vivid. Yes, let's call that color combination vivid.

I'd call it, "predictable" seeing who was deciding. 0:)

"Green and yellow, green and yellow.
Oh mother be quick, I wan't to be sick
And lay me down to die!"

We should introduce him to Teddy - the colour scheme of T's sewing room is this with additional purple.

Green and gold. Australia's national colours! Who could object to that?! (Sorry. If there is an interrobang, I haven't found it.)Kate

Green and gold - The Packers!!

Sorry, I'm from Wisconsin, it's automatic. I don't even watch football. Like, ever.

I am delighted that Phil paints while wearing a tophat and rainbow suspenders.

Suddenly I have the worst craving for those gummi candies that are shaped like fruits and coated in sugar!

I have NO CLUE how that could have happened, of course.

Heh. Well, you can tell from his suspenders that he's not a man who favours understated earth tones. :-)

He had a rainbow on the walls of his apartment in New York (which was pretty cool, really) so I can't say I'm surprised.

Can't you edit it in PhotoShop?
Mar. 7th, 2012 11:01 am (UTC)
*ahem* This is also a predominant part of the colour scheme of our home (yes, Teddy helped with the painting--it was quite a surprise when he and Jan found they'd both bought the exact same colours) and nobody's complained yet...

LOL! I chose the same colors for my bedroom when I was in high school. The carpet was a shag in that vivid green color, while the wallpaper had the same green and yellow in a HUGE 'jungle plant' motif.

You GO, Phil!

How very...Byzantine. According to a few of my friends who have done research into it, the "vibratory levels" acheived by certain color combinations allow the wearer and the observer to reach a higher level of consciousness or get closer to divinity.

You could look at this as a spiritual exercise...once your eyeballs stop vibrating.

Oooh, I love the colors!! Very nice!
Mar. 7th, 2012 03:00 pm (UTC)
See, all of Phil's friends could have told you that allowing him to pick the colors would result in "Ouch". But did you ask? :)
Mar. 7th, 2012 03:27 pm (UTC)
Looks fine to me.

Did I ever mention that I'm red-green colorblind?
Mar. 7th, 2012 03:51 pm (UTC)
I agree... I really like the "Light-Gray-On-Lighter-Gray" motif...
Mar. 7th, 2012 04:06 pm (UTC)
That may be the first truly honest definition of the phrase "eye-popping" I've ever seen. And what a dapper painter that Phil guy is. :-)

So... hobbit color chips, I guess?
Mar. 7th, 2012 04:31 pm (UTC)
It... matches Winslow?
Mar. 7th, 2012 04:32 pm (UTC)
Well, it's certainly...bright. That's a good word, bright. Happy word. Oh dear.

My studio in our old house was painted bright pink with lime green trim. And in the house before that, it was bright yellow. So I see nothing wrong with vibrant colors in one's studio space.

I suppose hobbits need some description nowadays, since they have become rare and shy of the Big People, as they call us. They are (or were) a little people, about half our height, and smaller than the bearded Dwarves. Hobbits have no beards. There is little or no magic about them, except the ordinary everyday sort which helps them to disappear quietly and quickly when large stupid folk like you and me come blundering along, making a noise like elephants which they can hear a mile off. They are inclined to be fat in the stomach; they dress in bright colours (chiefly green and yellow)...

Phil's a bit tall for a hobbit...

My eyes! They bleed!!!

My brothers painted their bedroom that kind of green when they were teenagers. And my sister and I had gingham patterned wallpaper that got close to that yellow (it was a compromise - she wanted pink and I wanted blue so yellow it was).

Eyeballs vibrating ... yeah.

Those colors are great!

(And he's still got his hat, so that's proof.)

Our condo association painted the hallways in that combination, a few years back. We moved soon after...
Mar. 7th, 2012 10:18 pm (UTC)
That's a color combination well-designed to set off hayfever and allergies.

Hanging pictures on it and putting furniture in front of it mutes the effect. My writing room is RED, but has a lot of picutres on the wall, which people find less overwhelming that the plain wall.

Uh... Is this why Cheyenne colors your graphic novels?

All kidding aside, these are my high school colors.
Mar. 8th, 2012 12:26 pm (UTC)
Maybe next time have Phil cover the walls in gaslamp doodles and have Cheyenne color it...

No fair; these two stole my comment.
Mar. 9th, 2012 03:55 pm (UTC)
Oh joy!

That's a colour choice after my own heart

oreouk sent me a link to come here and check out the colours - she's right, those are the colours I painted most of my previous flat (carpet matched the green and I even tiled the shower in the same yellow - like showering inside a lemon - VERY disturbing for the poor goth who rented the flat from me after I moved out).

Those walls are the same colour as my current sewing/costume room (all the woodwork is different lego colours - I took the lego briocks along to the paint shop to have the colours mixed to match).

It's so nice to see that such good colour choices in decor are an international phenomenon.

FYI: Typo
Kaja, you have a typo on the third panel of today's comic. "The formula's is".

I love those colors, that's almost the same as the colors I picked for a bedroom I used to have.

In Phil's defense
The rainbow colored suspenders never get old or out of style. It's like a personal sandwich board declaring "I convey whimsy and merriment."

I think those colors are *great* for a writing room/studio!

They will help keep the writer/artist awake.
