Trying to extend the optical effects in Colorado Snow Effect 4, colour was pushed towards red, green and blue in verticle bars across the image. This references, in low resolution, the three colours comprising video screens, and forms an intermediate optical "holding pattern". From a distance the painting appears greyscale, then on approach the coloured bars become more noticable, before largely dissolving close-up, as saturated colour takes over. More experiments are needed...
