The delicate covers that I love the most occur at dawn and dusk – not those vivid hues that you associate with a wonderful sunset but those subtle ones that almost go by unnoticed. These are the ones I love.

Sometimes just the delicate colour can make it noticeable as a colour not that often seen.

Where nature and lighting work together to give a properly distanced street party those delicate colours.

Sometimes it is the artificial lighting that works alone to create an atmosphere due to the delicate colours formed.

Thank you to Ann-Christine our host for Delicate colours Lens- Artist challenge

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    Great colors. Well done.


  6. I agree with you about the delicate colors being so gorgeous. When taking art classes in college, I often went for the high key colors on my projects, something the other students rarely attempted. Subtlety can be a very effective communicator.
