Pink Parasol


30x22 mixed media (watercolor, acrylics, gouache, ink) on 140 lb. Lanaquerelle hot press paper done today. This is the third time it has been revived and reworked and had a white bg before; a more pink umbrella can be seen now, not this orangey. Abstract shapes/colors were added to the sides of the woman. I left the patterning intact on her costume but did glaze with diluted gouache.
C&C welcome

Re: Pink Parasol

I’d love to see that pattern all over the outfit! Good colors in foreground, seeing a lot of thought went into the color scheme. Enjoying the painting as a whole. Cool pallet, again.

Re: Pink Parasol

Charming mood and vibrant happiness colours
It's hard to tell from the photo what the different media are. I love watercolours too.

Re: Pink Parasol

Ahhh...a lot of the colors are have slightly cooler undertones than I thought, which beautifully balances out those HOT HOT HOT hues!!

I love the original for its simplicity but the reworked piece is lovely as well
