Watching the Waves (Priscilla)
This began as an homage to Priscilla, one of Carol Rossetti’s wonderful characters – a transgender woman. Priscilla wears a dress which shows up as turquoise or sky blue depending on whether the image is printed or on screen. I didn’t think there was any point trying to decide whether it was blue or greenish-blue when it could be both. I’m rather pleased with how it turned out.
