colour musings

The colour has mellowed a bit, as you can see.

Here's the picture the same day it went up. It might look the same to you on the screen, but trust me! It's mellowed.

. . . .and look! The cross beams are in on the back portico. Yes, that's apricot on the back wall, as well.
It is really vivid going up, isn't it? This is a colour you have to have some courage to go for. Once stucco goes up, you don't paint it. That's the colour it is. . . . but you can't get it that colour, unless you're willing to risk passing through the vivid.

I think there's a life lesson to be learned here.
