On a grey overcast day sky blue paintwork sings out like a break in the clouds.

 

 

There’s a nautical theme to some of the blue painted facades around Montparnasse….

 

 

probably due to the Breton influence in the quartier

 

 

but that doesn’t account for the colour choice of La Comédie Italienne.

 

 

Once you’ve got your eye tuned to a particular colour you start noticing it everywhere.  The sky blue tarpaulin is temporary weatherproofing, though maybe it’s a sign of better things to come.
