Those Blue-Green Colours

Those blue-green colours, and what to call them – aqua; turquoise; cyan; cerulean; teal; duck egg blue; blue-green-grey; pastel blue-green; blue-green or green-blue……  Some languages have the same word for blue and green.  I love the complexities of the colours available in paint today.  As in nature some of these paint colours appear more green than blue on some days, and on other days more blue than green.  There is combination of calm and freshness about these colours.

On this day the Rakaia River looked a serene blue green

…. which is why I chose these colours for their calming effect in the Under 2s area of The Acorn Day Care Centre
