One Response to “Paint by Numbers: Iqaluit Sky at Dusk”


  1. Thanks for drawing my attention to Marcel Prince’s Flickr set on architecture. His colour choices are stunning and dramatic. From the Google translation of his profile I learned that his “sculptures are assemblages of mostly found materials such as wood, iron, stone, toys, feathers and utensils.”

    In each of his panels he is only slightly altering the shades of colours so they are all pleasing to the eye. You could do this by taking photos of the colours of spring on the Island and noticing the differing values of each colour on individual grasses, plants or trees. You could look at slight variations of colours in beach sands or rocks. It’s not always just a difference in the amount of white light that is added. Sometimes there is a slight change in terms of warmth or cold colours. You could find three that you like then play with combinations to create panels. Paint stores can mix colours for you as long as they have a sample, can’t they?

    I remember that your homes always had good interior design. I find that now I am more daring in my fabrics thanks to Fabienne who likes yellows, blues and reds and makes them all look quite happy together. Of course large paintings pull room colours together. So much for, “Good art does not match your sofa.”

    Each place has its own light which affects colours. So Baffin Island and Prince Edward Island sunsets may start with similar embodied paint pigments but the digital translations might be quite different. The sunset over the West River Causeway and the sunset from Baha’i House in Iqaluit are quite different but this may also have to do with the quantities of each colour present, contrasts, juxtapositions . . .
