Playful Pink Cosmos


11x14 watercolor on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press paper, a demo started yesterday for a class then finished up today. I used one of my pink cosmos photos from my studio backyard flowerbed taken about 9 years ago when we had rain regularly. I've used this reference before for a very loose version.
C&C welcome

Re: Playful Pink Cosmos

Hi Kay.

A lovely summer glow, and super shadows and shading on the petals. I like the cropped close-up composition. If I may ask, what pigment did you use for the flower petals? (Great choice).

Thanks John!
I used several pinks: Quinacridones violet and magenta, permanent rose, Fuchsia, Taylor's Pink Flamingo by American Journey.

Re: Playful Pink Cosmos

Wow Kay, you have a lot of pigments to work with. Great result.

I have a total of four "reds":
Cadmium red
Cadmium red pale
Perylene red
Venetian red

and permanent mauve (dioxazine PV23).
