Color Series: The In Betweens Day 1

Magenta Peony

I’m finally getting around to working on this branched out color series. The focus will be on the colors that I don’t feel really fits solidly into one standard color or another.

I was going to try and target warm colors vs. cool colors as a way of trying to organize or group these, but I realized that my silly brain has about as much problem with that as it does with trying to label some of these as a standard color. So, that idea is getting tossed. I’ll just post the photos as I find them and a brief explanation as to what my brain does with that particular color.

As with my previous color series, my goal is for whatever photo I post to have a single color be the focus of the image, but I may give myself a little more wiggle room for these.

Magenta is one of those colors that refuses to let me put it in any single category. It is a kind of pink that leans too far red and has just a shade too much blue, which edges it closer to a kind of purple. It is a warmer color, but it has those bluish, cooling undertones to it. Not so much to drop it into a cool color for me, but it softens it just enough that it doesn’t entirely feel like a warm color either.

It is also one of those colors that from a photography standpoint, can go all over the place if you don’t make the right adjustments. It is one that seems to be difficult for me to get a true color in the photo in comparison to how I see it in real life.

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.
