I made this for the cover of "A Singular Shade of Grey", but then I made "The Grey Thinker" and used that instead. At some point in the novel Nemo wonders why the builders can't simply paint the urban constructions, instead of them leaving them in drab concrete white, which the weather quickly turns into drab concrete grey - and there are enough examples of the success of this in the world that it should be a no-brainer. The same goes for churches - the pillars and walls of mediaeval churches and cathedrals were all highly decorated, whether with the full-scale frescos and altar-pieces and rood screens, or simply by painting the pillars in blues and reds and greens. A touch of primary colour in our lives - is that really so much to ask?
