Adding the pink first, spashing the page with coloured water, then drying with hairdryer.

We are meant to notice what is different, but the only thing I noticed was a lack of any substancial fading going on.

The same was true when I applied the orange, again splashing and drying. No fading, only minor colour variations.

Then the blue wash… well, if I had been missing my fading, here it was in all it’s glory! Fading, streaking, wishy washing all across the page in various amalgams of blue, pink and orange. Oops? No, I don’t think so, in fact, I think, this fading gives the image much greater dimensionality.

I can see families playing various ball games in the sea and on the shore!
