What a delightful way to describe a palette of colours: light-hearted.  What hues would it include?  Sky blue, dancing fuchsia, apple green?

And something charming in those untutored and marveling eyes.  They may be untutored but at least they are marveling and that is half the thing.

‘… gazing with untutored and marveling eyes down perspectives crossed by the diminishing slants of winter sunbeams.  Pastoral scenes unfolded in light-hearted colours across ceilings.’
