Falling in love with a painting that doesn’t exist


When I saw Naomi Okubo’s paintings I instantly loved them.

I came upon them via this design blog and instantly felt they were both old world and modern at the same time. The subject matter could be changed out with an old Italian master and yet the color pallet was fresh and current.

They I looked for more of Naomi’s work and quickly found out that the piece I loved didn’t actually exist.

The blogger was exploring the CMYK pallet Naomi is using and matched it with squares along the bottom. As a separate note, the tool she’s using Colourlovers is pretty interesting on it’s own.

Odd to think that I fell in love with the image here… and it doesn’t even exist. It’s part of a designers color exploration exercise. I don’t care… I dig it as is.
