Lisianthus Flowers

A break from painting begonias to paint lisianthus. My first attempt isn’t worth showing. After finishing it I felt frustrated by the two reds, Cotman’s Alizarin Crimson Hue and Cotman’s Cadmium Red Pale Hue, that I had in my palette, I searched through my art supplies box, found Quinacridone Red and added it to my palette. Here are my next two attempts done on Fabriano cold pressed watercolour paper (12.5 x 18 cm)

And the third one done on the slightly larger piece of paper, which I think could be Saunders Waterford HP paper (185grams). Still need to work on my darks.

    I think your sketching skills (from a previous post) are pretty good! These watercolour flowers show beautiyul subtle colours, quite enchanting! The last one is really good – just enough darks to make the painting “read”. Well done!
