Purple Yellow Pansies

11x15 watercolor on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press pape begun yesterday and completed today.  Years ago I used this same photo and painted a much smaller version which quickly went into someone's home.  Also had prints made and only one is left, so I used that to draw the pansies again but in this larger format.  The background was done with light washes of Prussian blue and thalo green yesterday and today a dark wash mix of alizarin crimson with the other two colors overlaid that.
