For someone with a big mouth and endless supply of things to say I am remarkably quiet about the colours in Robots Don’t Cry. I think this is because the colours (and the ratios they are applied in) are so far in excess of my expectations that I prefer to just look at them rather than talk about them.
My mind can’t recall having been this excited about 6 pots of paint for a long time. I mean, just look at them – is it just me or do the words gorgeous and wow keep appearing in your mind?
I’m not suggesting you fall in love with the painting but simply to measure your own reaction to the brilliance and lustre of the colours I have used – it’s one hell of a combination.
Raspberries and cream anyone?
The star of the show
In my own opinion it’s the raspberry-into-black ring that contains all those amazing striations of colour. The bit I’m talking about is the dark area before you reach the red circle.
I had actually painted the dark circle without anything over the top but after adding the red one I soon realised it was sucking you in far too much. I mean, black holes are great and all that but I don’t want one hanging on my wall!
So in came the crazy raspberry features over the top. I mixed in a little pink here and there but the entirety of the circle is just one shade of raspberry red and black.
