....the colourful local houses which brought pigment names to mind– aquamarine green; cadmium yellow; yellow ochre; cerulean blue; alizarin crimson, lizard green……….the rich greens of the foliage – yet more pigments – sap green, viridian, Prussian green, hookers green and more ………..the beautiful ultramarine blue sea, and the gorgeous cadmium orange, crimson and cadmium red sunsets. The sharp, fresh blue-white uniforms of our hotel staff, made even whiter somehow by contrast with their burnt sienna skins, dark eyes, and gleaming white smiles! The Lapis Blue of the sari worn by a lady who floated through the hotel gardens on occasion. The exciting street scenes and beach market scenes, people thronging , their clothes a riot of colour, no careful colour-matching here…the colours and movement formed a visual kaleidoscope.
