Flower Blossom Colour Study

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.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at society6.com/debiriley and, redbubble.com/people/debijriley/shop
