Cambridge Science Festival Cancels Events

News today, following announcements from the organisers cancelling individual events day by day.

The Cambridge Science Festival has decided with great reluctance to cancel the remainder of its scheduled programme.

We came to this extremely difficult decision after thinking long and hard about the welfare of our visitors and our staff. Their health and safety must come above all else and we do not want inadvertently to expose them to the risk of coronavirus.

We realise the cancellation will be a disappointment to our thousands of loyal supporters but we feel it is the right decision in the circumstances.

Very best wishes,

The Science Festival Team

The Parrot Knows

It’s also annoying after a while. So I may junk this post.

Space And Colour

As we know, painters create the illusion of a three-dimensional space with perspective and with colour.

Even with a strip of different colours the apparent nearness or recession of different colours may be apparent to the viewer.

Which colour if any do you see as the nearest to you?

Mood Board / Creative Market

The lower image here is the mood board I downloaded a few minutes ago as a freebie from Creative Market.

I am pretty sure I have mentioned them before. Join for free, stick around for the Monday freebies, and maybe buy a font or any of the many other things they sell.

So while I am waiting for a phone call, I put three images in the mood board.

The boat on the right is a crop from a retirement greeting card we are working on.

As you can see, the sea is translucent, not opaque. We can see into the sea and we can see the bottom of the boat.

Does the bottomless sea strikes you as a little bit disconcerting, or does it speak of freedom in retirement, or something else? Just wondering how it strikes people.
