Bleeding Hearts - nature's Valentines

5.5x7 watercolor on Langton 140 lb paper/Daniel Smith paints done today.  First I spritzed with water then quickly with 1" flat brush, laid in yellow, green gold, and alizarin crimson with a touch of ultramarine blue.  After drying I painted both positive and negative shapes of the dicentra plant using all the reds, oranges and pinks on my palette.  Splattering was done when that dried.

I totally love this Kay. It would make a perfect addition to my dream bedroom. Of course first I would need a home to construct the dream bedroom in.

Thank you for sharing "Where the Heart is", which I blogged on 29th Jan - a natural tulip with magical hearts on it's petals.
