Day 2 of
30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS
It was one of those beautiful, end-of-summer days - sunny and just enough humidity to make it still feel like summer. What better place to spend a portion of the day than in my art room with the sun and breeze pouring in the open windows!
This jumble of paper, paints, brushes, and pens led to the petite 5 x 5 inch watercolor/pen/ink I have named, "FRESH CUT." I have used 300# Arches watercolor paper which is a thick, 100% cotton fiber paper mouldmade in France. The watercolors used are Sennelier, also made in France and with an increased amount of honey for luminous, lightfast color.
This flower would be an enchanting addition to your cottage garden. It's a zinnia that is heavy on the petals and deep in the rosy-reds, and a little of the orange-reds on the petal tips.
