My painting for day 13 is a floral transparent watercolor.  It is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.  The main colors were quinacridone rose-violet, sap green, burnt sienna and sepia.  The center is a naples yellow background with a mixture of the violet and yellow for the shadows.

It is like looking at a flower through the zoom lens of a camera. Just beautiful and the shadows are exquisite.

This has the vibrancy and, dare I say looseness, of a painting on Yupo! Your value system is above any others'!

Sherry...thank you so much for the "fine" comments. You are always appreciated.

It is funny that you mention YUPO because I just posted today's painting and-guess what? It is on YUPO! Now - I don't handle YUPO very well - not like you - you have so much control on YUPO paper.

Thanks for mentioning my value system because I really like strong value contrast - and am honored that you noticed.
