  Cuba Colour 


Provence + Greek Blue + Old White 

Barcelona Orange
Scandinavian Pink with some Emperors Silk

French Linen
The colour of the car with the yellow and deep red in the background
Primer Red 

English Yellow
The car has a top of Aubusson Blue
For the main part with the car I'd make a greenish grey with Paris Grey mix with some Chateau Grey. The chrome lines are terrific too - maybe with some aluminium leaf. 

Old Violet
Greek Blue with Old White
 Streets in Havana are full of colour and beautiful architecture and all unspoilt by absolutely NO advertising, road markings and all the usual things that spoil streets in the rest of the world.
So refreshing and inspiring.
