YES! I Started Again!

I just wasn't quite liking the way this looked ...

So I started again, with a smaller format [ 7 x 7.5 in. ] and much more yellow in the flower.

Then some orange siena

Lots of playing back and forth with the alizarin and the orange.

I thought a leaf would be a good foil. There are two blacks - a harder black of alizarin and phthalo green, and a softer one of quin. burnt orang, quin. violet and indanthrone blue. It's not quite finished yet ...

As ever, please feel welcome to leave comments.
