This was a fun piece where I was able to mix some interesting purples for the flowers. I found these growing in the yard of a good friend of mine after he purchased his new home and thought they would make an interesting painting. I had a terrible time trying to get the colors to scan correctly from the original piece so I had to resort to using my camera and daylight bulbs which is much more effort for me and reduces the size of the available prints. The original is 14″×10.25″ and is painted with Rublev, Sennelier, Daniel Smith, and Winsor & Newton watercolor paints on Sennelier 140# cold-pressed paper.
