Chagall – a small panel of America Windows 

Day 6/31 #WorldWatercolorMonth 

Paying homage to Marc Chagall – who was born on this day (well yesterday actually, but my site was acting up and it didn’t get posted on time for some reason!!!) 

The brilliant stained glass windows – America Windows or the Chagall Windows, as they are popularly know are a signature feature of The Art Institute of Chicago. They were forever made famous by their appearance in the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

For me the blue of these windows is just off the charts! 

I used one panel for this sketch and used YInMnBlue as well as other pigments made at Oregon State at Mad Subramanian labs. 

Brilliant YInMn Blues – came out of the Blue

As a chemist, for me the chemistry of YInMn Blue is fascinating at the atomic level, but as an artist to combine white, pale yellow and black and produce BRILLIANT BLUES, albeit under extreme conditions, is a Mas Subramanian feat indeed! And it’s simply magical !!! #
