I have recently introduced Quinacridone to the fairly limited palette of colours I tend to use. I’m not sure how this colour will look on your screen but in reality it is the most beautiful rich brown with a real depth to it. Depending on the lighting it can turn towards maroon, purple, or black. I have had it pinned up here for reflection, as I usually do with new work, and the more I look at it the more I like it. I might have to do a version of Bliss in this colour… I generally do more than one colour version of an image; frequently I do a black version and a colour version—but I haven’t yet done the flowers or tools in black. In fact I have printed far less in black generally in the past year or two; I seem to be enjoying the richness and boldness of colours.
