I love old blues songs and new blues songs and the color blue in all its shades and hues :) For the colorfulwatercolor group we are doing 2 paintings of the same thing, trying to get a different emotional feeling/mood by the colors we use. This is my starting painting and I'm calling it: Am I Blue? I'm doing it the Birgit O'Connor way (just got a new DVD of hers) very wet-in-wet, petal by petal.
Of course, there's quite a bit of violet in there, too, but I'm doing this in a blue mood :) It's actually painted from a very closeup photo of a hydrangea Jerry took when we were around Vancouver Island last fall. But you don't have to know that - especially when I change the coloring!
