Still, I thought I'd show willing and have a crack at the colour palette, practising using the adaptive palette and changing colour options on Adobe Photoshop that I learnt on Michael James workshop in Rolduc a few years ago.This involves picking out colours from an image to construct a palette then various colours can be changed. A fairly restricted initial palette helped as did just being able to type in the numbers listed across the TIF Jan Palette rather than guessing what the colour might be. It does raise the issue about how different monitors and printers deal with colour.
The changes in colour below are quite interesting but as the essential colours of Iran are blue and turquoise, I feel its an artificial interpretation, not one I wish to pursue.
So I decided to move back to my studies of Henry Moore sculptures - being abstract to start with means that to some extent what colour they are is irrelevant. The challenge for me was whether the colour changes added anything or indeed detracted from the original.
