Violets and Ivy Watercolor Painting
I'm still in my purple flowers phase. Can't get over how much purple and green compliment each other. My favorite purple, used here, is Winsor & Newton Winsor Violet. It's one of those colors that I never mix with anything. I tend to tinker with so many colors - greens (always), blues (usually), pinks (often)....but this beautiful Winsor Violet is so perfect I wouldn't touch it. And it is so nice against the crisp white of the paper. I drew this little vignette while doing another of my favorite things: listening to "Artists Helping Artists". What a wonderful show. I listen to at least one archived broadcast every day, and am so grateful for it.
