Working on Clifton Road again today–with a nice silver-white on walls and trim. Very easy on the eyes and nerves. Think I’ll work tomorrow (Saturday) to keep on top of things. Spring is here and the phone is ringing.
When I start to think that my studio is getting out of control, I look at pictures of the great Francis Bacon amid the splendid squalor of his.
I believe there is no better example of the inverse relationship between order and creation.
I’ll also be applying clear coat to a piece I finished last week to see if I can bring up some of the colours a bit.
I’m using Revere Pewter (HC-172) from Benjamin Moore in Regal eggshell. I’ve used this colour a few times before and it always looks great.
Here’s how the Benjamin Moore site describes it:
“A light grey with warm undertones, this classic shade creates a unifying look that calms and restores. A great transitional colour, it’s perfect for an open floor plan”.
The house I’m painting does indeed have an open main floor, so this colour is perfect. Here’s the chip.
