Spiral Bookmark 6
Tuesday, February 26th, 2013
Today’s bookmark reminds me of sun on the ocean, lightening up the top layer that then gets darker the deeper it goes. The sun is in a shimmery copper, while the ocean is three levels of three spirals each, from a pale aqua that my scanner loves to hate, through a brighter blue and then finally a soft greyish sapphire. All of the paints are iridescent, and catch the light beautifully.

Above, you can see some of the sun-changed colors and get a different hint especially of the deep blue and pale aqua. Below, you can see it hanging out with my trusty hardcover book.
