Work in Progress: Petal Light II

I've started a new painting of Bird of Paradise, experimenting with orange-blue complementary color scheme. So far, the underpainting stage is going smoothly, and I really like the wonderful granulations formed by French Ultramarine mingled with Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber.

  1. I follow your watercolors ...sweet to see everiday you play with same material,on the other side of the world,to capture the beauty of the flowers!!!BRAVA,ARENA!!!

  2. Arena, I LOVE following your blog! Your watercolors are exquisite. I'm trying watercolors and find your blog very inspirational. Your step-by-step explanations of your work help so much.
    One suggestion--flower petals are spelled with a "t", not a "d". A pedal is something you step on, like a brake pedal, a piano pedal or a bike pedal. Hope you don't mind this. ;)


Thank you so much for taking time visiting and commenting on my blog! Your feedback and encouragements are things that keep me going with I am feeling down or frustrated... I will try my best to reply to every comment ASAP but sometimes life gets in the way and I am a bit slow in my response. I would like to apologize if that happens...
