colour palettes and other shades of grey

Vermeer, A Lady Writing (1665-66, National gallery of Art, DC)


Vermeer, Woman Holding a Balance (1664, National gallery of Art, DC)

Franz Kline, Untitled (1954, New York, NY)

Turner's Snowstorm: Hannibal and his Army crossing the Alps (1812, London , Tate Gallery)


When researching colour palettes, I find art galleries a wonderful source of inspiration. The masterful workings of colour used by artists over the centuries are awe inspiring. A current project of mine (to be photographed next week), began life with these paintings. Art's a great place to start a conversation about colour in the home: from one environment to another.
