SINGLE FLOWERS IN DARK BACKGROUNDS



Working on another lesson for the class - a single flower in a dark background.  Glazing color to get strong, clean color in the flower.

The background of this one is made from a mix of Perylene Green and Perylene Maroon, which makes a nice grey color.  I like the water blossoms.

This is a fuschia.














This one has a mix of Perylene Green and Perylene Maroon at the bottom, moving into Perylene Green and Sap Green at the top.  Background is still drying in the this photo.

Not sure what this flower is.

The Fushia is beautiful. I love the density of the pigments, it makes for very striking images.
