Is Pink a Colour?
I'm entertained by the current war on the colour pink. Unlike red or violet, Pink it does not appear in the light spectrum. So is it an actual colour or just and interpretation of a mixture of red/violet light?>
This interests me as I've always had troubles dyeing pink. It needs nuance as it is easily turns into a Barbie Bus colour, or putrid pale baby pink if dyed without considerable attention. It often just feels like a failure by itself. I wonder if this is some sort of subconscious reaction to the interplay between red and violet. Or maybe I just haven't hit my pink stride yet.
Regardless - Rose will be back in the colour cards this year. I will have to come to terms with my prejudices.
