|Siberian Iris, Redux. Watercolor.|
10 x 6.5 inches.
The best part about this painting, is that it's on hot press paper (Fabriano 300 lb) and there is not anything but watercolor. I am going to conquer the hot press, thank-you very much.
Phthalo blue red scale, hansa yellow medium, and quinacridone pink--all by Daniel Smith.

|Blue Abstract. Watercolor and Crayon.|
7 x 10.5 inches.
I know, I know--that's a blatant rip off of Kermit and The Muppets.
I own green paint, I really do, but I've used it less and less over the last year or two. When I reset my palettes recently, I put out two greens--one is phthalo green and the other is ....I can't remember, but that gives you an idea of how often I use it.....
When I sat down to paint, I was thinking abstract, and decided to try phthalo green, phthalo blue, and burnt umber (I think). Then I threw in some quin pink. Then--well it was not looking cohesive. I ended up adding caran d'ache, and then more opaque grayed watercolors over the top.
It's on Fabriano hot press 300 lb watercolor paper.
