HUNGRY FOR APPLES
Here's a painting I finished last night. Do you remember; this past summer I participated in a apple orchard festival where I had to paint in front of clients. At that time, I started an apple painting and didn't get to finish it because I forgot about the watercolor no. 1 rule : Never mix complimentary colors together.
I started over again and managed to complete it. I really enjoyed working with apples. It was a learning experience to mix red and green together. The reds are really beautiful and clean.
I used many different reds. In Winsor Newton; Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Carmine Red. In Daniel Smith brand; Quinacridone Red, Permanent Red. For the darker red I mixed Alizarin with Hooker green. I worked both wet onto wet and wet onto dry paper. I did use some masking frisket for the white. I rarely use it but this time it made life easier.
Xmas is all about the color red. Try it and enjoy it's lots of fun
