Alizarin Crimson rocks!
Reflections, light, glass, wood, plus some flowers I love came together in this painting done in my studio. I learned to layer cadmium red over alizarin crimson to create a vibrant red. I’m still figuring out watercolor techniques and find that I achieve the kind of brilliance of color and hue I want by layering colors. This method is often discouraged (or so I’ve read), but it works for me. I’ll probably never paint pastel tones.
