Glow in the Cold Midwinter

This is today's daily creation...a watercolor- 11" x 7" which is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.  It is painted entirely in quinacridone gold and antwerp blue.  I floated the gold in first and dried it well and then re-wet the painting and floated in the blue on top, trying not to lift the yellow underneath.  I guess the winter weather is getting to me - I have been in a winter painting mood!   lol

Thanks,Christiane...I was afraid that all I would get was green - and was very relieved when that didn't happen.
