Color Series: White Day 7

Fuzzy Dandelion Seeds

This white series had really kind of felt like I was cheating. White is one of those colors that my brain doesn’t like to assign to most things. Many of the photos I posted really registered as “very pale purple” or “cream” or any number of tints or shades in the white range, but still holds some color. Which frustrated me.

To me, white almost isn’t a color. It is the absence of color, but it tends to reflect colors that are around it so there is always some color visible. Or, as I said above, it is really just an extremely pale version of a color. Either way, my brain doesn’t really like to put most things in a white category. Especially not things in nature as those will almost always pull other colors in.

While I shared some really pretty photos, very few of them actually ping white to me, so this series was hard on my poor artist’s brain.

I’ll be starting another series soon usings LA’s suggestion of doing cool and warm colors to cover some of those in betweens my brain refuses to put in a standard color range. I probably won’t start that for another week. I need to get past recital before my brain can function again. That’s assuming it ever really functions well to begin with.

I’m off to spend a chunk of Mother’s Day sitting my mobile dressing room (aka, my car with sheets hung up over windows) so BG can do costume changes for pictures. An interesting experience brought on by covid restrictions. It also means I get to do some creative photography on my own with her in front of her studio, so it’s all fun, if a little chaotic.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I am a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife, mom and raging introvert. I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.

  1. Yes, I understand your point, but textures and tones can really be accentuated in a white photo. This one in particular is a lovely example of that (as well as accentuating the slightly warm-toned tan that’s there too). Beautiful photo.
