Magical Monarchs

 

The cheery Sunflowers are first painted with mixes of Cadmium Yellow Medium + Cadmium Orange + a touch of MUD (2 parts Ultramarine Blue + 1 part Alizarin Crimson), Cadmium Yellow Medium + Alizarin Crimson and Cadmium Yellow Medium. Then the large centers are added with a combination of MUD + Liquin. You may click on this, or any of the other images to see them larger.

The petals of the Sunflowers illuminated by the sun are highlighted with Cadmium Yellow Medium + Lemon Yellow. Moving to the Lilies, I begin blocking them in with mixtures of Cadmium Orange + Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Red Light and pure Cadmium Orange. The deep centers are drawn in with Alizarin Crimson + Liquin.

Flowers are done, let’s start on the kitty next…….
