Desert Flowers #Watercolor #Strathmore #ArtJournal

Day 4 in my 10-day watercolor a day journal. I've realized that I don't really like the magentas.


Quinacridone Rose (more a cool red, but I still lump it in with the magentas because of the characteristics), Alizarin Crimson, Magenta -- that whole range of powerful, staining red to magenta colors.  They're beautiful colors, but mistakes are hard to fix, and it is so easy to go wrong with them.  I find myself avoiding them, which is probably a good reason to start using them more.  You never learn to use something by NOT using it!
