Another inspiration for using bright colours in the landscape (see last two posts)...vermilion,
and viridian on Monet's famous bridge.
On a more domestic scale...I painted this little window lime green before we made the gate and
half way through painting this blue seat yellow I decided I liked it half done with some of the blue still showing through.
Even if you don't have a garden you might have a window box or a tub in say,bright blue with orange marigolds?
I didn't live in a house with a garden until I was 27 but on the windows of the third floor tenement flat in Glasgow I had two window boxes filled with nasturtiums which thrilled me and brightened up the whole street.
