Tis the season # 2

I continue on with my Poinsettia paintings,mainly because i have a good reference. I used a bit of pastel on this one and tried to develop the darks a bit more. At first some of the darks were to much so i lifted some color and added a wash of magenta,which seems to be my favorite lately.

I remember the day when Aliz. and perm pink were my favorites. I suppose i need to broaden my palette and use different colors~ not yet!

It's funny how we all have our favourite colours - Mine being Permanent Rose (at the moment)! Your seasonal flowers are so beautiful! :0)

Poinsettia delight! Can't decide exactly how you have progressed from the original post image, as this time you've cropped it ....but like both versions. Enjoy finding new colours in your explorations - I too find permanent rose a wonderful colour for flower paintings (see Sandra).
