I love the many colours of rust .
Whether it is the green of oxidised copper
or the blues of weathered brass,
be it the dusty red of corrosive iron
or its brilliant yellow when the iron flash rusted in a flood;
I just love them all.
I know I use the word rust liberally but as far as I am concerned, all these patinas form part of Nature's perfect palette of secondary colours; colours you get after mixing air with metal.
Ochre to sienna, russet to umber,teal to verdigri, cyan to turquoise.
What will art be like if we are to make it with this perfect palette of patinas?
