This week I’ve been struggling with colour, trying – and failing – to get the printed actuality to match the subtlety of greenish-grey I intended. Yesterday I decided to drop subtlety and and spent several enjoyable hours playing with primary shades. Fingers crossed they’ll come out as intended.
And somehow, although on re-reading there’s no actual mention, Dave W’s ‘Fixed’ put colours in my mind with sufficient strength for me to declare him this week’s winner.
And yet again, I thank you for your contributions, all of which enable me to visit several shades of brightness.
