No. 6--Butterfly Weed
I was thinking that pretty soon, you're going to think that all I'm painting is bouquets. (This would be No. 6 on my 100 Bouquet Project.) That's just not true. It is about all I've been blogging about. I've said it before and I'll say it again--the place to see everything right now is Instagram. Come follow me there. (Pushy, yes?)
About the flowers--they are a wee bit invasive. They're also not quite right for the monarchs. I just pulled a ton from my garden, and have winnowed the patch down quite a bit. I love the intense orange.
Paint--perinone orange, prussian blue, and indian yellow. Paper--300 lb fabriano rough.

The paint is still wet and I'm not sure I'm done but this is the first cut. No 6--Butterfly Weed. #watercolor #100bouquets #stilllife
No. 5--The Demo
You can see some iterations of this piece in my practice painting, and then my first final version. Then I decided to go back with some opaque watercolors and lighten things up in the background.
Two days later I went and did a show, and then collapsed in a heap and didn't paint for a while.
Anyhow, because I took this painting along with me, it's already matted. It's fairly large.
