While others were taking a 30-day painting challenge in September, I felt like I needed to have something to paint. I started this 6” x 6” watercolor from a photo of a potted hydrangea that was taken inside a store. It was lit well enough to give me the needed light and shadow. Having put it aside many times, I would go back to it building up many wet layers. Cobalt Blue and Permanent Rose are the primary colors used along with some New Gamboge Yellow. I enjoy doing these small florals in between larger pieces to keep me in practice.
