9x12 watercolor that is today's work from life on 140 lb cold press Canson paper. My pot is more gamboge yellow than lemon yellow, and of course the dark purple-blue violets do not have dashes of permanent rose either. As violets leaves are thick and velvet texture I tried to imitate both color and actual tactile sensations. For them I used thalo green mixed with periwinkle blue and quinacridone violet, with some quin gold and UB. For darks I used a blue called Indanthrene and really like its properties, and also indigo blue plus quin burnt orange. Yellow pot was arylide by DaVinci.
