Merlot

I had "Merlot" in my head instead of Marsala, but here it is. I have to say I struggled with this colour, it did not ring my bell the way pure red does. Can't say much more about this!

  1. The touch of blue really works with this colour. I hope the merlot was good.

  4. The full immersive Marsala experience, Helena. Did you try using a little complementary olive green in there?

  5. Another one in your lovely series of work. I might have been tempted to add some paler colours in there, but I guess it then wouldn't be Marsala.

    1. i agree Linda. But they seem to have a mind of their own when I am working on them. If I were redoing it, I would make it paler. But I don't think I will ever make another one in this colour!

    2. Merlot or Marsala, the colours are rich and velvety. The piece has depth.

  6. Love this piece even if you feel it does not quite fit the colour. I had not realized the difficulty this colour would create and in researching for dying it is a colour that can switch from having a touch of pink or brown. It could be paler and lighter or stronger and darker. Apologies to all .. but this is a challenge !!
