Yesterday, I was a bit unhappy with Ring 2.
The shapes looked too emphatic and clumsy, the colours too bright. I wondered if I had made a mistake. But I decided to have faith, and started to add Ring 3.
And then the stars came out against the darkness of the background colours, and everything was OK again. That strip of colour just had to be contained. The purple diamonds are going to need some sort of punctuation. I want the effect of rivets or bolt heads… I think small dull-gold buttons might do the trick. But it can wait until the pieces are all put together. The purple and rust both still look rather garish under artificial light – they’re much softer and duller in daylight. I’ll get to photograph it in daylight one of these days!
I’m going to stop cursing the little triangles. After all, they made the stars happen.
