Fall Inspiration still life

22x15 transparent watercolor on Daler Rowney Langton Prestige 140 lb cold press paper, done this week and finished today.  It has been a looooong time since I painted a still life and these old apothecary bottles too interesting to pass up.  A branch of turning red orange leaves completes the vertical composition.  This was painted wet on dry using Daniel Smith paints:  Quinacridone burnt orange and gold, new gamboge, green gold, UB, transparent pyrrol orange, undersea green, raw sienna, cobalt teal blue, Prussian blue, manganese blue, along with Winsor Newton lemon yellow.
