Rusty gold/orange/bronze and gunmetal grey (and all the variations in between) can be seen on the architecture of Paris.
These are the colours that I seem to be drawn to subconsciously.
I prefer these colours when printing too (they just seem to suit my work). I've decided to keep 'colour boards/journals' when I get to Paris - I think they'll be useful resources for ongoing inspiration.
Here are my favourites in all their variations - Parisian vert, orange et gris.
|Chestnut branches outside our apartment window|
|The tranquil garden at the Musee Rodin|
|Rodin's verdigris lovers outside Musee de L'Orangerie|
|Living botanical wall at the Musee de Quai Branly|
La Couleur Orange
Modgliani's orange flesh tones at the Musee de L'Orangerie
|The polished and gleaming orange tones of the Musee Nissim Comondo|
|Apricot peony from the rue Cler flower market|
|Miro's vert, orange et rouge|
|The elegant Art Nouveau wrought iron at the Grand Palais|
La Couleur Gris
|I love walking through here - the Buren Columns in the main courtyard of the Palais Royal.|
|A beautiful example of trompe l'oeil in the 7th arrondissement|
|Mon appartement???? I wish!|
|Gris et verdigris at Musee Cognacq-Jay|
