Tonal Line 3 – Warm and a little crazyBy
Todays colours flow across the warm end of the spectrum, and there’s one crazy addition called Iridescent. Confession: it’s not exactly a tonal, more of a variegated, but it comes from a photo I’ve wanted to do something with ever since I took it and it simply did not work as a gradient.
Next up is a brilliant red that I wanted to call “Sumach” but ended up naming “Torii” after the Torii Gate shrine that I shot in Kyoto. Not for the faint of heart, this is one saturated red!
Now for something softer; this gentle, almost neutral blush colour is called “Flamingo”.
And lastly, a colour that I’ve called Lilac in the past few weeks but changed to “Aster”. Aster means star, which doesn’t make a lot of sense for a purple colour, but it’s named for the New England Aster; a flower that is common in Ontario. I caught this one at dawn, covered in dew, and before it had opened its bloom to the sun for the day. When I came back later that morning the sun was up, the dew was dried, the flower was open and somehow I thought the magic had gone out of it a little.
Tomorrow; neutrals and a few changes to our gradient line (hint, if you really loved Daisy or Tulip you might want to order them soon!). All colours launch Friday!
WOW! Each new revelation is another WOW! You are doing some amazing color work.
Can you tell me what the killarney twins are. Are they 2 skeins. I’m not a knitter. As a gift, would 2 be enough to make socks?
