I've read in certain sources (AA, for one) that a mid-gray background wall is th e best thing for exhibiting photos (mounted and matted in the conventional way o n white board, etc.). AA pointed out that mid-green or mid-blue etc. would do a s well. I've seen this done and agree strongly. It seems so patently true, in fact, that I cringe when I walk into a gallery exhibit of fabulous images hung o n the usual white wall. Anyhow, I'm about to paint the main wall area of our li vingroom one of these kinds of strong colors to make a good space for pictures. Does anyone have any tips? Obviously, the lighting situation of my particular room, plus color of the floor etc. etc. is critical, but I'd be interested in co mments.
