Orange ya glad? (not really)
I picked up my new canvases today and they're all ready to paint on. I also went to the paint shop to get three colours mixed up, because I want to use the colours that are in a Wonka Bar from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). I got the yellow right but everything else is wrong and I'm annoyed. I though the brown would be darker and the orange a little pinker. That Wonka orange is so hard to match! It's sort of red but pink but orange and what's more it changes depending on what screen you view the movie on. WOE IS ME. Anyway all this confusion led me to purchasing the above platform shoes too which just so happen to be the exact colour of the orange in the paint tin which struck me as mockingly weird. I will have to go back to the hardware store tomorrow and match the colours again. Meanwhile tonight I think I'll watch a comfort movie 'Almost Famous'.
