COLOUR HUNTING: TRADEWINDS
trade wind – noun
1. Also called trades. Any of the nearly constant easterly winds that dominate most of the tropics and subtropics throughout the world, blowing mainly from the northeast in the Northern Hemisphere, and from the southwest in the Southern Hemisphere.
2. Any wind that blows in one regular course, or continually in the same direction.
Tradewinds reflects my fascination with all things maritime, from the ocean-going explorers of the 18th and 19th centuries to the pirates and mythological sea creatures of storybooks. It’s also littered with references to entomology and, one of my heroes, Charles Darwin. It is inspired by fact and enhanced by fiction and has a palette that, depending how you use it, can be either calm or wild, just like the sea. And me.
Be wild like the winds and paint yourself a bed head with Galleon manila, or play it safe with Anchorage on a feature wall or two.
