In order to plan the program I'm giving for the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society on January 8, I have to also paint the painting like the DVD shows. So here goes...
Each petal is wet and then color dropped in and allowed to merge and blend by tilting the paper. This is just 1/4 sheet size (11" x 15") because that is the size I want the members to paint as they watch the DVD.
The colors used in the painting of the canna are: New Gamboge, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, French Ultramarine Blue, Azo Yellow (Birgit uses some different colors, but I used what I had that matched her colors).
The DVD I'm showing is:
Watercolor: Within the Flower
by Birgit O'Connor.
Somehow, I ended up with two of these DVDs so I'll be donating a copy to the GCWS after I show the DVD on our projector and have members try to paint this way. I hope they enjoy it!
