Tucson shows it colors
The bright, bright blue of the sky is the best color you'll see in Tucson, but many buildings in the heart of the city use bold color to grab attention.
My favorite buildings aren't painted but rather use oxide pigments in the stucco or plaster. It's easy to spot buildings cloaked in this integral color because they appear to have depth and softness. The color of a painted building is uniform. With integral color, there are slight variations based on how much and how well the oxide was mixed into the stucco. Integral color doesn't fade so much in the sun.
