Think Red

Another spread for the 2012 Sketchbook Project and these red pages are very simple. I used pieces of sample paint colour strips and on the right hand side the usual watercolour squares. I love reading the names of the various paint colours. Do they hire people in, specially to devise them? Scooter Red, English Fire, Fireside, Flame red, they could almost be part of a poem.

On the left hand side I added a cotton fabric printed with one of the many photographs I took over the summer of my roses. The right hand page was covered with a transparency of the word red in a wide variety of languages (from Altered Pages).
