In this artwork these primary colours have been replaced with the colours closest to them that can be derived from materials found in London. This locates this canonical colour diagram in the locale and time frame of contemporary London.
The pigments use din this painting are: (L-R clockwise)
-Earth colours fro London pink, red, orange, yellow
-Verdigris in three shades
The artwork is made of solid oak and uses low reflective museum glass.
