Music & the Synesthete - Preacher by One Republic

This songs means a lot to me so I was really glad to get to paint it. My grandfather was a watercolour artist and now that I’m painting more I think about him a lot. I wish he was still around - I like to imagine the conversations we’d have about colours and stupid things like paper thickness. 

This song was actually a bit of a surprise because it makes me feel strong things and strong rich colours, but it sounds like these lighter ones in the painting. It never occurred to me that I might have other types of synesthesia but maybe I was so caught off guard because the emotional associated colours (which I didn’t realise I was having!) were stronger than the sound until I concentrated.
