Raining today as well:)
The Descent Series
art, The Descent series, watercolor
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.
Many thanks Violet!
Thank you Anette!
Yes, joy and light!
A few clouds too, but so what?:)
I like “summer rain”- it’s all nice and warm, and afterwards everything smells nice. I bet she likes “summer rain” too- her smile is super wide! 😉
One of those joys that most of us cherish, I think. Thanks Jess!:)
I agree with the others… really conveys a sense of joy and happiness!
Summer joy springing from everywhere. Especially that smile!
Your use of white space is lovely, Elena!
Thank you Millie!
What a smile – she is enjoying herself so much!
A surprise summer shower, I think. Thank you Anna!
