Colours of the Bronte Sisters



I've just about finished the 3 colour wheels I've been working on (i just have to label them now).

One wheel shows the type of weather mentioned by Charlotte Bronte in Jane Eyre; one wheel shows the types of weather described by Emily Bronte in Wuthering Heights; and the third wheel shows the types of weather Anne Bronte uses in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
Each stripe is the percentage of the total weather references per novel.

I'm happy to have finished them - i got proper brain ache working out the percentages for each weather type - maths not being my favourite subject. But i enjoyed mixing paints and choosing colours and looking at colour theory again.

  1. The wheels are lovely, Rebecca. An entirely new and fascinating way to think of the novels!
