"Rosemaling, a Scandinavian peasant style of decorative painting, rejoices in the so-called ‘farmer’s’ colors: tile blue, ocher, barn red, and moss green. These heavy, quiet colors are often used with bright colors like verdigris (the green of corroded copper), turquoise, scarlet, and light yellow. In this sweater, a bright scarlet glows beside the earthier tones of maroon, brown, and burgundy."
