Pansies Watercolor Painting


These pansies remind me of sherbert with their peach and grape color. I've used my three color palette of one red, one yellow and one blue but with a slight change - I've used a cool rose red rather than the warm bright red that I've been using. This makes a more true shade of purple for the petals. This will be a good Spring and Summer palette saving the brighter red for when the leaves fall in autumn.

The pansies are stunning Janet! Obviously your new colour palette is very successful!
