I’ve been experimenting with my new paints… and I’m in love with quinacridone magenta!

Today’s Shoot it, Sketch it is all about colour and texture. The subject is something I sketched a few years ago (see below). The original photo is even older (2004 is not a typo). Just for fun, I used the sketch of the photo (rather than the photo) as my reference.

      Thanks, Bec. Watercolour or acrylic? Please don’t make me choose. I enjoy whatever I’m drawing or painting with at the time : ) And I’ve just discovered the joys of making acrylic act more like watercolour by using mediums and gels, so that’s like the best of both worlds!

    Thanks for the like, Anna, on “Anticipation Flowers.” I love Gerbera Daisies too, and have done some pen & ink studies of them. They are on my blog. See you again.
