Colour Hunting: NbyNW

 

My love of stories of sailors & pirates lead to the NbyNW palette - I delved into the world of seafarers from a ships paraphernalia, weather predictions, famous travel tales, handy knots and the maps, charts & signals one needs when on the high seas for YEARS! In Etcetera I list the 'Skills that Sailors had Other than Sailing’ : sewing, tattooing, birdwatching, whittling, scrimshawing, training pets like monkeys, parrots, crickets, dogs, musical instruments, making games of quoits & balls, dancing jigs & singing sea shanties, reading (most ships had a library), basketweaving, and palm&leather braiding, collecting specimens, botanical drawing, cooking, shooting&skinning specimens, herbal remedies, rope&net making, bone carving of buttons, needles & gambling chips.
