I've been gathering up prints that I'm not terribly fond of and giving them a quick dip in the indigo vat. I'm often pleasantly surprised at the outcome. This print had a yellow background. Yellow has never been a color that appeals to me. And green doesn't do much for me either. Apparently, Pantone doesn't agree with me, naming "Greenery" the color of the year for 2017.
It's been a while since Pantone picked a color of the year I actually liked. Even they seemed to have trouble in 2016, they picked two. A little too much of the traditional baby nursery for me.
2015 was a bit dull.
Radiant Orchid, from 2014, made me think about little old ladies in the 60's.
I think I'll just stick with the colors I come up with in the indigo vat.
