Partial to Red Poinsettias

15x20 watercolor on the back of an old dog that wasn't worth trying to make better.  I spritzed water then threw paint loosely with 1" brush in wide areas using NO PENCIL.  Let dry, then began to carve out red, pink, and all shades in between of poinsettia leaves with green at bottom of potted plant.  Background is neutral with UB, Coastal Fog mix and some Periwinkle Blue (American Journey) colors.
