Kevin McCloud-On my list marked ‘fastidious obsessions', getting the right fine old French grey is pretty high. If you were a color expert, you could take some chalk-white casein distemper, add raw umber, a little raw siena & you'd be there. Note I didn't mention black there - when you mix black & white the resulting color is so cold you might as well call it blue. No, for a good grey, go greenish & go with earth colors. Fine complex colours are the tinctorial equivalent of fine old French wine.
