Watching Paint Dry 06.19

Taking the opportunity presented by an empty room with one window facing east I photographed a series of variations in colour temperature taken across the course of a day. The variety of colour is astonishing and is a good example of why I like to paint interiors white*, the light entering a space has infinite variety and more colours than I know how to name. Even in subtle light conditions colour comes from light, not paint.

(*since taking these pictures this room has been redecorated with a fresh covering of white emulsion)
