|"Mood Flower II"|
3.5" x 5.25" Original Watercolor
2011© Gretchen Bjornson
This piece is reminiscent of an earlier piece I painted titled "Mood Flower". I used the same reference photo, which was taken by me, but kept the background lighter and airier than the original "Mood Flower". In this painting I laid down a wash of Quinacridone Gold and followed that with a layer of Prussian Blue once the first wash dried. I love the green that was created in areas near the bottom.
This is painting #22.
