A simple, yet effective flower study using a new triad of colours in a fun combination. Quinacridone Sienna PO49, Prussian blue Pb27 and Raw Umber PBr7 created all these yellow golds, oranges and the blue greens.
I used a bare minimum of brushstrokes help to create a more compelling and clean image.
One stroke of prussian blue on a “dirtied” brush, then three strokes of raw umber and two of quinacridone sienna to blend together – complete the flower.
I did not go back in to try to ‘rework’ or fine tune areas, this kept the flower petals from going muddy.
