Pink One - Next Stage


Toned down the blue and blended the white gouache a bit more. Then removed the miskit on the bird. Will tackle that with only transparent watercolor - after I decide what color pink a pink flamingo really is :)
But today is the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society meeting with a business meeting beforehand so I'll be busy until later in the afternoon. But the guest artist who will be giving a demo is going to be sharing how she works with opaque watercolors! How cool is that?

I like the idea of showing the cloud reflections with areas of white gouache, hadn't thought of that one yet. Interesting! This is going well and I look forward to what you choose for the pinks.

Thanks so much, Vicki, Susan and Pat for your comments on this one. Susan, no great idea on my part showing the clouds - they showed in the photo Jerry took! haha
I am liking creating water with opaques and letting the colors float on top and move - works well.
