Yesterdays Bouquet


Yesterday’s Bouquet,  has a pop of Cobalt Teal Blue pg50 watercolor paint as a perfect complement to the mass orange scarlet of the flowers painted from Floral Motif.

With all that scarlet,  this has a very warm temperature bias.

Azaleas in CTB


These ‘Azaleas in CTB’, (cobalt teal blue pg50)   were  featured in my post  Spring Flowers Azaleas.

Spring Azaleas has a dominance of greens and blues, making this have a definite “Cool”  bias to it.


Can you tell the difference now between the 2;  warm vs.  cool?




Cobalt Teal Blue watercolor by Daniel Smith  is one of my best loved paints.







I find cobalt teal blue pg50,  so  Beguiling  and playful;     Magical  in the Mornings,  and versatile for just about anything I can imagine.


Try it…….

You’ll fall in love with cobalt teal blue too!

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 and,

  1. I love Daniel Smith watercolors and that is the only brand I use. I’ll have to check out the Cobalt teal blue… is scrumptious! what do you mean by pg 50? am I missing something? You inspire me to learn to be more playful with watercolors. Maybe I should have a “Debi Riley inspired watercolor day” have you in mind and see what I come up with! 🙂

    1. (RE pg50)
      signifies the ingredients a paint is made from….
      Pigment Green 50 pg50 this tells you its not! a hue. not a cheap substitute. manufacturers now list the Pigment # on the tube.
      we artists, need to educate ourselves to not use Fugitive paints, nor hues, filled with rubbish.
      imo cheers, Debi

      1. now I understand….I have avoided that part of the “knowing” because it seemed so complicated. I need to get educated and start being aware. I do look at the ratings of permanence and whatnot but never the pigment # and understanding exactly what it ensues. Thank you for the clarification. 🙂
