13.5x5 watercolor on 140 lb Saunders Waterford paper done today. Using a scrap from a failed painting I turned it over and sketched the rudbeckias, or blackeyed Susans, and bee for this quickie demo for class. Not sure what to do with the background I began at the top with a 1" flat sable brush and using Blue Bice and Periwinkle (American Journey brand sold by Cheap Joe's). As I went along I added blues thalo, ultramarine, and manganese and thalo green. Yellows: Aureolin, quinacridone gold, new gamboge, Halloween orange, quinacridone burnt orange. Dark centers are quin burnt orange, ultramarine, and indigo.
