|Daffodils. Watercolor & Crayon.|
5 x 7 inches.
These daffodils started as a landscape, morphed into an abstract, and then finished out as flowers. I wanted to mess around with blues and yellows and oranges, but didn't really have a plan, and was working fairly small.....hence the confusion. They took a while to sort out what they really wanted to be...
Just for an idea, here's where things stood when I finished with the watercolor. (I hope this link works....)
The painting wasn't coming together, but after I added the crayon, I think it hangs together. I think it needed the shape and line. (And, to be cropped a bit.)
Paint: Manganese Blue Hue, Prussian Blue, Hansa Yellow Medium, Permanent Yellow Deep, and a touch of indian yellow.
Caran D'ache Crayon: silver grey, dunkel beige, and indigo blue
Paper: Fabriano 300 lb Hot Press Watercolor Paper
