The colour coral reminds me of the orangey-pink blush and frosty lipsticks by Max Factor and other cosmetics giants of the 1970s and 1980s that littered my mother’s dressing table. I swear even her pancake foundation in a tube had undertones of coral — I could check because I think she still buys it several decades on.
I thought of doing a tribute to that period in this week’s 52 weeks of colour challenge, however, it was 40 degrees Celsius outside and my brain was too hot to function beyond telling me to look to the sky for signs of a cool change. This was my second attempt at making a set on my little sky platform and took three long attempts; it’s all about lessons for next time.
