Together with DS-Black Cat (right),
Blossom's size is average, but not small.

Pavel: "Since in reality it is difficult to see the difference I lighten the image by RAW-converter to see the tints. The background is black cardboard. Absolutely black background reflects more light than DS-607


Image

with DS-Black Magic (right)

Image


"This photo was even more artificially lighten in the RAW converter. You could see that DS-607 absorbs more light that DS-Black Magic.

This conclusions came from camera’s RAW-converter data.
DS-Black Magic pigment consists of 86% red and 14% purple.
DS-Black Magic background pigment consists of 96% red and 4% orange
DS-Black Cat pigment has a 35% magenta and 65% red.
It means that DS-Black Magic is more purple than DS-607.
Since DS-607 pigment absorbs almost all light, human eyes cannot see this tint."

with white background and very bright light

Pavel:"I wanted to hybridize black fantasy."

Together with DS-Little furry arctic fox #3

March, more blooms

After long discussion about the name they name it after famous French writer Stendhal's novel

"The Red and The Black"

When the flower had not opened yet, it seems that it will be all black with no fantasy. But as soon as it begins to unfold, you could see the fantasy.

Blossom are medium size - about 8 cm (3")

Thank you!
I really love this strep, and I can't wait to see more of your new fantasy streps here in the U.S.!

Karen, how did you manage to take a picture of it!? I couldn't do it at all! My attemps to catch the colour and the stripes failed!

Hello Katherine, and welcome!

I could not take photos of it under fluorescent lights.
Only in natural light was I able to get the red to show nicely!

Tremedous! With me it was vice versa) Your strep is very, very nice! How is it now? Do you have more snapshots?
