Thank you Steve 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Nice shot, Liz, a good bold scene. I agree with Mike, all the straight lines do give it a kind of abstract feel. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks so much Robert, I think *bold* is a very good word to describe this scene – a scene which took us very much by surprise! LikeLike Reply I really like your “feast of colour” that has an abstract feel to it, in part, I think, because of the abundance of straight lines and geometric shapes and the presence of primarily primary colors. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply We walked out of the library together and stood on the footpath gazing up at the scene, it seemed so striking! LikeLike Reply ps. it was after midnight when I initially replied to you and this morning I read your comment aloud to Nigel and laughed when I got to the “presence of primarily primary colors” bit haha,,, I like that! The shapes, lines and colours *are* really interesting and just now we were talking about how most elements *have* to be where they are *but* we were lucky with the positioning of the crane gantry! LikeLike Reply You know me well enough, Liz, to tell that the repetition of the word primary was intentional. Watercolor has caused me to think a lot more about color theory and color mixing, including the use of primary colors. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Indeed I do know you well enough but last night I was sleepy and the wordplay had more effect this morning and amused me very much! In fact, just now I read it again and in my imagination ‘primarily’ became ‘pri-merrily’ and I was thinking of the little rhyme/song of “Row, row, row your boat…” and it was a wonderfully light-hearted moment (thankfully disrupting far more serious thinking). I’m grateful for the fun alliterative wordplay which lightened and brightened my morning 🙂 LikeLike Reply Thanks, Liz. I am glad you had as much fun reading it as I did writing it.
