Bravo Sir.

It strikes to the heart and intensity of the subject matter while keeping a certain playfulness which helps the viewer to empathise with the situation at hand, while also allowing them to intertwine their own emotions in various subtle but surprising ways without breaking the overall essence of form or function.

A true masterpiece.

Spoiler

The picture, zoomed in (> 300%), shows the hands of a clock at 5 minutes and 5 seconds to 11.

People suspected of suffering from dementia can be asked to draw hour and minute hands at 5 to 11.
People with dementia or the onset of dementia have difficulty doing this.

Is there significance in the dark red line

Yes, that is the second needle.

Ah, gotcha.
Even though I’d read the bit about the seconds it never ‘went in properly’.

P.S. Is there are reason why there’s a little ‘notch’ in the second hand where the three hands ‘meet in the centre’, and elsewhere? I noticed that the second hand is quite ‘wobbly’ in some places. Could this be a problem with the WEBP export or is that in the document?

It must be the webp, because I created this magnificent masterpiece in Designer. Hmmmm, realy pixelated as raster export.

Actually, when I saw the picture I thought of it as a picture of a white-crested tiger heron.

The reason being that some years ago I made an experimental font to test an idea that was current at the time and the output was to be a picture of a white-crested tiger heron.

As what I was doing was to test the way the access to the picture was coded, I just used a picture much like yours to represent the white-crested tiger heron so that if the image was displayed then I would know that the test had worked.

I had not noticed any red line and cannot find it now actually, I tend to use my computer with Night Light on permanently except when I am checking colours, and not very bright at all.

Viewing it with a Gradient Map applied really shows some ‘areas of concern’.

See attached image where I’ve highlighted two major ‘areas of concern’.

Here is a screenshot with a section of all hands. The red line (second hand) has a thickness of 1.4 points. This is probably due to the decimal value.

To me it is an allegory of the concept of love as a force that drives nature represent by the exaltation of sensuality, spiritual beauty, purity, and nobility of soul.

An absolute masterpiece, to become associated with Affinity Suite as it glides forth into the chaos that is Canva.

But if it were framed and on a gallery wall, what would people make of it?

I am reminded of the following.

No, I think, I will let it under CreativeCommons. 🙃

But I should patent it as a symbol for World Dementia Day. 🤪

So here is a design puzzle, one which might bring @Alfred into the discussion as he may like this design puzzle.

If one uses Affinity Designer to draw a clock face where the time is ten past eleven, what should be the angle between the two hands?

If my organic head calculation unit is working correctly, it is 32°. 
This is because the hour hand is at 28° and the minute hand is at -60°.
The hour hand moves -1 degree every 5 minutes.

I think 85 degees. Obviously if hr hand pointing @ 11 and minute at 10 this is 15 minutes or 1/4 of an hour so 90 degrees.

Breaking up the distance into the minute hand and hour hand.

  • The minute hand is 600 secs from vertical.
  • The hour hand position is dependent on the minute hand.

Since the minute hand moved 10 minutes or 1/6 of an hour, the hour hand must have moved 1/6 of the distance between 11 and 12. Since 300 sec between 11 and 12 1/6 of that is 50 sec.

so from when hour hand was exactly at 11 it has moved 50 sec.

Since the total number of sec from 11 to 12 is 300 but the hour hand moved 50 there are 300-50 or 250 seconds between its position and the vertical.

So 600 sec for the minute hand to vertical plus 250 for the hour hand to vertical = 850.

 Using proportion easy since 360 degrees and 3600 sec per hour, just divide by 10 so 850/10=85.

https://polypad.amplify.com/lesson/overlapping-hands-of-a-clock

to get overlapping hands the exact time is 

10:54:33

So essentially the answer to the test you referenced is flawed.

at 10:55 the hour hand is not matching the angle of the minute hand
