Everything's Coming Up Roses #Watercolor #WorldWatercolorGroup #Strathmore

Last week's watercolor class had us painting up roses.  I went a little larger than I usually do, painting on a 10 x 10 sheet of paper.  This was supposed to be my warm-up, but of course I couldn't stop once I got started.

Done on Strathmore Imperial 140 lb Cold Press (which I quite like by the way).  It's quite sturdy, feeling more like a 200 lb and not needing to be stretched or taped down.  The pigments used were Daniel Smith New Gamboge, Winsor Newton Cobalt Blue and Permanent Rose. The brushes were Silver Black Velvet flat 1 inch, and size 16 round.

It's a little early to be preparing for fall, but this time of the year the weeks go by quickly.  I thought I'd get these pumpkins ...
