Red soil

The colour range of soil is a paintbox of colour. With that in mind, I have matched shots of red soil with equivalent colours from the Farrow & Ball paint colour chart.

    Brilliant idea! Do you know that you can also paint with soil? When we were in Andalucía last year on the way to Casares, I believe, we gathered some of the reddest soil I’d ever seen (outside of Kauai, HI), pounded it into powder and mixed it with water. Then I painted and the result was quite lovely. In Mexico, I met a man who painted with Nescafé instant coffee. Red dirt and coffee paint work well together. 😀
