is one of my colours
This is how to say the French say it http://www.forvo.com/word/arles/#fr Quite difficult for our English tongues!
I named it after a town in the south of France
in the area called the Luberon , famous for the vast deposits of yellow ochre pigments in the hills.
All the houses are painted in various ochre pigments from bright yellows, earthy yellows, oranges to earth red.
Famously it's where Van Gogh lived and painted becoming obsessed with yellow. His paintings have heightened concentrated colour
To use Arles, which is hot and intense, in our homes you need to use cooling quiet colours such as those above or Country Grey or a lightened version of Paris Grey
Using any blue with it will only make Arles more yellow as blue is the complementary colour - great in a painting but not on a piece of furniture
