A Chili Heart

The Geraniums are blocked in using my usual sequence of Flowers First, Leaves Last. The reds are combinations of Cadmium Red Deep + Magenta, Cadmium Red Deep and Cadmium Red Deep + Cadmium Red Light.

The leaves of the Geraniums are made of mixes of Pthalo Blue + Lemon Yellow. After painting the leaves, highlights are added to the sunlit petals of the flowers with Cadmium Red Light. Lavender Salvia, painted with Dioxazine Purple + White, nestles at the foot of the Turquoise door next to the container of Geraniums.
