Colour Walking – CMYK

Four colour isolation walks around my neighbourhood, blue, pink, yellow and black, or, at a push, cyan, magenta, yellow and key. I feel very aware of my urban environment at the moment and these colour collections reflet that.   Several surprises.  The first being just how much more in the moment I felt walking whilst searching for colours.  Most of the time when I walk I am focussed on getting somewhere –  it is a very different experience being more present, taking notice and enjoying my surroundings.  Second surprise was how hard it was to find some colours.  I had to really hunt for pinks, but when they were found they were well worth the effort – the pink princess pony is a real favourite.  Other colours were plentiful but lacking in variety – so much of the yellow I found was gorse/road marking bright, I think 90% of the cars in my area are black, and a good 70% of the front doors some variety of blue.
