Created in the midst of winter, this watercolour painting was created with the dream of spring in mind. I couldn't resist some gold and rose-gold accents to bring it to life and add extra cheer.
Although I spend most of my time in the digital world where there are billions of colours to hand, it's hard to resist pigmented paints, filled with history and lore. Excluding the bling, this piece was created with just three pigments: vivacious French Ultramarine, moody Perylene Green, and mysterious Serpentine. The latter is a wonderful green pigment from Australia that granulates into green and burnt scarlet particles, given huge depth and texture. I love how these three colours play together.
This original watercolour painting is on the highest quality 9x12" 140lb Arches 100% cotton cold-press watercolour paper.
Embellished A4 prints are also available, where the stamens are hand painted onto the archival Giclee print with gold and rose-gold watercolour paints. The prints are on archival textured fine-art paper using archival inks. Limited-edition of 30.
