"Leaves of Gold"
"Leaves of Gold"
Margie Whittington
A new painting I did as a demo in Tuesday Morning Watercolor Class
at the Fort Worth Woman's Club.
I used Daniel Smith quinacradome transparent colors of
gold, scarlet and sienna. This brand of paint is rich and lustrous in
color.  The under painting was a wet into wet wash of colors and splatters.
 I then drew the leaf and stems on the dried wash.  Using a dark
mixture of ultramarine blue, gold, scarlet and burnt sienna, I painted the negative
area behind the leaf shapes leaving the original wash color on the shapes.
A little separation and detailing and I was finished.
Please leave a comment and let me know your impression of this painting.
Thank you for viewing this post. Please come back soon to see more paintings.
