Inspired by the vibrant and punchy hues that the culture of Mexico naturally forms where daily lives spill onto the sunny streets: pots of geraniums & marigolds, street stands selling fresh watermelon, tacos & guacamole, grilled corn & salsa verde. Everywhere you look, you see brightly coloured walls & sign-writing, even the VW & Fifties cars of reds & greens & oranges, seamlessly create this palette. After sorting through my numerous photos from Mexico, this fruitful & cultural palette seamlessly came together.
The title of this palette is borrowed from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book of the same name. These high summer hues are reminiscent of Fitzgerald’s imagined garden tendered by The Diver’s in the South of France, abundant with vegetables, flowers & sunshine.
