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 hands in your drawing are very nearly at right angles. You correctly subtracted -60°, but why did you subtract it from -28° (to get 32°) instead of subtracting it from +28° to get 88°?

Please ask me something easier. I'm just too old for complex calculations. 😂

And because the Affinity programs only output semi-circular inputs up to 180° positive/negative.

The answer is 85 degrees, on the basis that the hour hand moves 30 degrees in an hour, so moves 5 degrees in 10 minutes.

At exactly 11 o'clock. the hour hand is 30 degrees from the vertical, so at 10 minutes past 11 o'clock the hour hand is 25 degrees from the vertical.

At 10 minutes past 11 o'clock the minute hand is 60 degrees from the vertical.

60 + 25 = 85 so the answer is 85 degrees.

So I was correct!

But your way more elegant than mine.

No, I took a mathematician's approach.

Yes, I've done my best to create an extraordinary warm and soft black. Have you noticed the extremely appealing gray tone of the hour hand? And isn't the second hand seductively red? It practically invites you to follow it for minutes.

Well, I don’t know about following it for minutes, but it certainly invites minute inspection!

Judicial use of chiaroscuro brings a Rembrandt to mind.

Is that something positive or rather something negative? Should I, in the prime of my creative career, reach for the bottle rather than the brush? 🙃
Then, like Udo Lindenberg, I would make "Likörellen". Likörell is a word created from liqueur and aquarelle

The colour in his paintings are mostly liqueurs.

Assuming that @Affinity Rat meant ‘judicious’ rather than ‘judicial’, it involves using good judgement and it’s therefore a positive thing.
