The Tate's Colours of Cornwall 

Teal blue waters with turquoise shallows beckoning from the clifftops? Sunsets shot with salmon and neon pink? Bright yellow wafts of coconut-scented gorse? Weightless grey-white morning mist? The pearlescent indigo inside a mussel shell?

What colours spring to mind when you think of Cornwall?

Colour's of St Ives colour chart

Tate St Ives wants us all to help create a Colours of Cornwall palette “filled with the colours associated with the people, places and things that characterise this beautiful county” – with their favourites to go on a Tate Colours of Cornwall poster (inspired by their popular ‘Colours of St Ives’ poster in collaboration with creative agency Dorothy for Tate Galleries).

“The artists connected with St Ives, were, and are, inspired by the beautiful colours of the county,” says Tate St Ives Director Anne Barlow. 

Tate St Ives got many people in Cornwall, and people who love Cornwall involved in the project. We’d love you to dig into your archives of happy days at Watergate and beyond to add some extra colour to Tate’s search.

Continuing the theme, Tate St Ives social media channels will also hold regular online discussions about how colour was used by the St Ives artists.
