This weekend despite the good weather I spent most of the day sanding, and painting Sweet Pea. Well. I thought picking a color would be easy. But one persons version of Sea Foam is completely different than another’s. Especially when it’s your wife’s. This is like that purple or gold dress thing.
So I just kept ordering paint until it matched what she thought seafoam is. And yes.. There are swatches, but nothing works that easily when it comes to real life. And these colors completely change in relation to the other colors around them.
Years of color theory and 35 years of being a designer, were no help when it comes to “her” boat. So after getting one coat of a close sea foam. And warmer white. Done…. SKREECH.. To dark, too yellow.
So here it is. We gave up on names about ten shades ago, and now just refereed to as #4
Please, I want to just varnish!
