Hunting McRae Scarf by quintmckown Hunting McRae Scarf by quintmckown
The Hunting McRae tartan is unusual in that not only does it have a lavender ground, but the actual shade of green is specified, "Reseda," or sea foam green. Usually in tartan cloth, the color is specified, i.e. "red,", "green," "blue," etc., but the hue is left up to the weaver. This is no doubt due to the pretense that the weaver was using natural dyes and so could not be precise in color choice. The fact is that most tartans were devised after the invention of aniline dyes, and precision in color selection was not only possible, but even desired.

I just wish the color in the image were more in line with the actual scarf. IMHO, it's a beautiful tartan, and quite unusual both with the lavender and the odd shade of green.

I was intrigued by the way the unusual color combo worked...I think I might be more adventurous when planning a project!

Thank you, Rick. The colors are much better in person. Somehow my white balance is off a bit. :-(

It's always tough getting absolutely true colour!

Especially when you're shooting on the bedspread with an overhead light, muted rainy day light coming through the window, and flash on the camera. I NEED A STUDIO!

I could use a studio myself! Or more knowledge of photography and a better camera! Or both!
