The Next Layer of Washes
By the way, this is a scan as opposed to the picture in the last posting which was a photo. The scan is much better.
Anyway, I have now finished the second set of washes as well as painting the veins in the leaves. For the flowers, I'm using Carbazole Violet and Cobalt Blue Violet on the bluer flowers and Quinacridone Violet and Napthol Maroon on the redder flowers. I had Rose of Ultramarine on the my pallette but wasn't using it. I wish I hadn't overlooked it because it's a very pretty color.
I find this technique to be tedious but also to require absolute attention as too much or too little water on the brush creates a problem that can't be fixed.
