Birthday Hollyhocks

15x11 acrylic inks on Fabriano 140 lb cold press paper done yesterday over pencil drawing of red hollyhocks.  Since I make sure to paint a complete painting on my birthday each year this one won the challenge.  I used FW acrylic ink by Daler Rowney in a limited palette of red, yellow, and blue mixing them to obtain secondary colors, lights and darks.  This resembles watercolor but is harder to manage and is quite shiny when dry.
