The Mediterranean's colors are unexpected. To an American whose reference point was the Caribbean, this island's color palette is different than I would have imagined. The landscape is craggy, rough & dry and as a result, colors are muted and have more gray-tones than vibrant ones.
On a recent visit, we wandered out of S'Arraco to discover the far western part of Mallorca. The colors we encountered along this route felt, yet again, like a discovery. While we love the brilliant colors of the sea, we're also drawn to these imperfectly uneven tones of the rough Mediterranean landscape.
I guess it's no surprise faded greens & grays continue to show up in our collection.
