Making Colour

The exhibition 'Making Colour' opens today at the National Gallery in London.

It's a show that I've been looking forward to for ages, as it sounds really fascinating.  It's all about the chemical, alchemical, biological and scientific business of physically making colour, and of seeing colour, and of the way that artists use the optical and psychological qualities of colours.

See two fascinating short films HERE about how to make pigment and colour from the raw materials.

Now I just need to try and find the time to get down to London to see it!
