Pop your color

This concludes "cardinal week"...it's been a colorful one. I like to use Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson and some form of either purple or even Burnt Sienna or Payne's Gray for the darker tones. You can even float some Orange or Opera on top of your Red washes to make the colors pop!

As always, your watercolors are always so clean and really "pop". Your cardinal series is great. Happy New Year!

Hello Annelein, I've seen a lot of cardinals last week on the blogs but I have to admit I like yours most. The beautiful reds and orange are beautiful in combination with the dark blue. Very nicely done!
