Orange. ...There is no denying orange's air of braggadocio. Godey's Lady's book pronounced it "too brilliant to be elegant" in 1855. Anthony Burgess might be thinking the same thing when he named his dystopian novel A Clockwork Orange in 1962. (He gave several explanations for the title during his lifetime : once saying he had overheard the phrase "as queer as a clockwork orange" in an East End pub; on another occasion implying it was a metaphor of his own making).

Chalk. ...chalk has a long history of use in art. The Uffington White Horse, for example, is one of the stylized chalk figures created in Europe during the Late Bronze Age. It still prances high on a hillside on the edge of the Berkshire Downs in southern England. Amid fears that it might be used for target practice by the Luftwaffe, the horse was covered up during the Second World War. When the war was over William Francis Grimes, a Welsh archaeology professor, was charged with disinterring… Target Practice, Daily Drawing, Bronze Age, Luftwaffe, World War Two, Welsh, Archaeology, Professor, Two By Two

Isabelline.   The story goes that in 1601 Isabella Clara Eugenia’s husband, Archduke Albert VII of Austria, began the siege of Ostend. Isabella, believing the siege would be short-lived, vowed she would not change or wash her underwear until he won Isabelline is the color the queen's linens had become when the siege finally ended three years later. Luckily for the poor queen, proof that this story is nonsense isn’t difficult to find.   From The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair.

Whitewash    During the English Reformation, churches and parishioners used it (whitewash) to obscure colorful murals and altarpieces that depicted saints in ways they now deemed impious. ( Over the years, as the paint wore thin, the faces began peeking through again.) This practice perhaps explains the origin of the phrase "to whitewash," which means to conceal unpleasant truths, usually political in nature.    #dailydrawing #kassiastclair #whitewash #secretlivesofcolour @kassiastclair English Reformation, Secret Live, Whitewash, Daily Drawing, Murals, Over The Years, Truths, Saints, Faces

Silver. “To extract silver ore from Cerro Rico, one of the two most profitable mines in their empire, the Spanish exploited indigenous labor. Using a version of the ‘mita’ forced-labor system the Inca had used to build temples and roads, the Spanish insisted locals over the age of 18 put in a year's work for subsistence wages. Accidents and mercury poisoning were common. The Spanish boasted that with the silver extracted from Cerro Rico, they could have built a bridge across the Atlantic… Mercury Poisoning, Forced Labor, Daily Drawing, Temples, Roads, Two By Two, Spanish, Empire, Bridge

Lead white.
