Two Small Watercolors

Just enough time today to do two small watercolor studies from my imagination. I just had to get the brushes wet and I wanted to use Pthalo Blue. Pthalo Blue is a very strong color and mixed it with Indian Yellow and/or Yellow Ochre. I also used a bit of French Ultramarine Blue for some of the greens just to help tone down the Pthalo Blue.
Yellow Flowers
41/4" x 6 1/4"

Wow! Two watercolour beauties! The Yellow Flowers are sooooo loose and lovely - gorgeous! And the Sunset!! When I bring it up larger, it looks like a view of a sunset from the highest peak of a mountain, surrounded by total solitude. I love them both, Ann. Great stuff....

Thanks Deb! I toned down the middle area as that color just read wrong to me. The only painting I've done. :(
