  1. Elena, do you happen to remember what colors you used in this and the others that are in the red tones?

    • This is basically cad red light, or brilliant red (depending on the brand of watercolor). Underneath is a flesh tone to get the drawing going. Also a little cerulean blue and ultramarine blue.

      • Wow, you are obviously very experienced in mixing them to get the color you want. I will always be learning…..Thank you for that; I will have to experiment now! What is the flesh tone color, a mixture?

      • Some watercolor companies make an actual “flesh” color-a caucasian mix of white, burnt sienna, and cadmium red light. The white provides a little opacity, so it works well for planning marks.

  2. Brilliant! ❤️

  3. Wonderful!
