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!

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
