Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Orange diversion

Posted on: 22/04/2010

I am still working slo-ooowly on the coelogyne asperata and getting bored with those plain pigments on my palette – brown, yellow, green. I need some COLOUR! Here’s another canna with unusual vibrant orange brown blooms and purple leaves.

Done on coldpressed 140lb Fabriano paper with a limited palette of Holbein, Winsor & Newton colours starting with a wash of bright New Gamboge and successive glazes of Cherry Red and Orange. The shadows were done with Phthalo Blue and the purple of the stems and buds were mixed from all the colours mentioned.
