Kenilworth Castle

The original garden at Kenilworth Castle was built by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s nine-day visit to the castle in July 1575.

In 2009 English Heritage recreated the magnificent Elizabethan garden at Kenilworth Castle.  I was asked to assist with the paint colours, which were causing problems.  With very little notice I was able to deal with the very complex colour phenomenon known as complementary contrast, which was causing the paint to look too pink.  I was also able to suggest a method for adjusting the paint without affecting the manufacturer’s warranty.
