There is nothing quite like an outdoor movie in the summer time. Last night I was on the roof of the modernist masterpiece the De La Warr Pavillion in the Bexhill-on-sea (http://www.dlwp.com), however, what struck me most was what was happening behind the screen. The most exquisite tones of petrol blue streaked with a coral pink I’ve seen in a long time. The dusk sky had a level of saturation; strong yet infused with a powdery softness, almost impossible to recreate in any medium. A subtle shifting of tone and value through warm blues reaching up to an inky blackness beyond and falling down to meet a glow on the horizon.
Nature has to be the most sophisticated, emotive colour theorist that ever was. How can we compete or recreate with such brilliance?
