Hot Pink

The colour for September is hot pink.

Okay, pink is not one of my most beloved of colours, but there is always fuchsia, or magenta. I can cope with those.

One of my students is making a skirt with a fuchsia design. Here is a glimpse of her design idea. I think it is going to get a bit of bling, too!

But here is a rose that was decaying on my desk. I tried to get closer and closer to see the texture and shapes of the layers of rose petals. The decaying, with the light and shadow brings out some interesting shades of the pink colour.
