Think Pink



The monthly project painting for January at WatercolorWorkshop is Think Pink. Here's what I came up with, from a photo by Jerry of sweetpeas. I like what the color is doing on this Twinrocker paper. I prewet areas first and then dropped the color in and I like what it's doing, the granulation, the separation, the delicate color - this is mostly Rhodonite Genuine and Quinacridone Rose (the pinks).





This is on 1/4 sheet Twinrocker coldpress 140# paper.










I would have painted more on this but had a bugger of a sinus headache all day yesterday from the wet wet weather (I guess).
It was unseasonably warm, too - around 50F. So much moisture in the air, the raindrops just hung on everything like little pale jewels.

I love the way you have the petals turning, so correctly. Sweet Peas have always been one of my fav's so I like this a lot.
