For Edition 118 we sent out “Colour Garden (Yellow)”, a gouache painting by Eloise Renouf. The composition and simplicity of this piece have us feeling calm and balanced while the unique pairing of yellows, greys, and peaches has inspired us to broaden our colour sensibilities.

1. How has the artist divided the canvas using shapes?
2. What makes these colours harmonious for you?
3. How has the artist turned a 3D object into a 2D image?
