Haar by Jinny Blom



Another northern hemisphere colour, Haar is the named for the thick cold sea fogs that roll into eastern Scotland. Illuminated by a setting sun trying to pierce the impenetrably condensing air, turning them a strange ultraviolet grey. This moody atmospheric colour works well against granite buildings or flint, or blue end bricks, warming and toning them. It is a valuable colour for stuccoed walls and other garden accents and backgrounds.
