|Watercolor Gerber Daisy|
on Canson Limited Edition Paper
More practice of painting loose with no pencil.
I purchased some leftover Valentine's Day flowers after the big love fest was over. Since I love Gerber daisies and I hated seeming them go to waste, I thought they would make good practice.
They've done well, but they're just about on their last legs. I decided it was time to get busy with the paint!
Everything was going along fairly well this morning until I managed to smear the lower right corner of the daisy.
Since I was working with both Perylene Red and Anthraquinoid Red, I knew there would be no lifting the color—both pigments stain. Not to mention that this paper doesn't allow for corrections very well anyway.
So, if you can't fix it, feature it!
I threw some paint at it and called it done. I may or may not go back and add some journaling.
