Water, in and of itself, has no inherent colour, but it permeates a complex world of light and shadow, minerals and organic matter. I chose five water photos for this palette, and as they were fairly complex in nature, studied the mosaic components even more closely than usual when composing the dye sequences and formulae. In the interests of reducing the photo burden this time around, I am going to give each colourway a post of its own.
First up: SkyWater
This photo was taken last summer, showing a piercing blue sky reflected in the crystal clear waters of the creek splashing down from a glacial lake high on Blackcomb mountain.
