The Story Behind the Picture

I had a spell where I was a member of a local photographic club. As part of it, we often went out on excursions to learn new skills and see different places. This was a trip to Old Leigh in Essex - a place where I used to live as a child. It was a rather nostalgic journey, seeing all those places I frequented as a teenager!

My aim was to take pictures of textures. At that point, texture was my "thing". I wandered around the moored up boats and along the path until I found a heap of coloured nets. They were a tangled mess, but my eye was drawn to the colours and patterns. The colour combination may not be to everyone's taste (and I'm not sure it's mine), but sometimes it takes something to make you try something different. Have a look and see what you think?!

Colour Palette

Orange / Turquoise / Brown

The colour palette, with hex and RGB codes, has been provided for reference. This has also been matched to the nearest tones in a few of my favourite yarns: Stylecraft Special DK, Paintbox DK, Caron Simply Soft and Red Heart Super Saver.

Please note that the yarn colours shown are an approximation of the true shades. It is impossible to find the specific colour codes for yarn, as it tends to be a subtle mix of colour. The suggested colour palettes, therefore, use the picture for inspiration and are just for fun. They may just give you some ideas on colour combinations, but please go to your local yarn shop and check out the true colours before purchasing. As with all technical things, the colours may vary according to your screen settings.
