|Mexican Sunflowers watercolor 13 x 10|
Fluorescent? Lucky me. Last birthday I received some watercolor pans from Case for Making, a San Francisco-based storefront that carries handmade pigments. The ones used here (as well as several other autumn projects): fluorescent orange light and fluorescent flame red.
In the working of this painting, the entangling of the blooms got to be too much, just too tedious. That is when I used a blue-tinted gouache to separate the top. This break almost reads as sky, and the design benefits greatly.
Color me fluorescently happy.
