Juicy Geraniums

Juicy Geraniums
Watercolor on paper, 6x4
After spending the entire day cleaning, organizing, putting things in the attic, and getting my art supplies in order - I have come late to my easel!  At first so tired, I had no idea what to paint.  As I relaxed just a bit - "geraniums" - popped into my mind!  Without sketching or planning the composition out, I started dropping on the drawing gum with one of my newly found palette knives.  Painting in the background, then some of the red, I next removed the gum - a wee bit early - which resulted in a little transfer of color onto my white areas.  I just worked that color in, and painted the rest rather quickly - and a bit boldly.  I am getting an early start on my Fourth of July colors!  I just found a perfect frame for this little painting, and I have the perfect spot in the family room for it - so I guess I will be keeping this one!  This painting makes 545 in 545 days - and another day of experimenting in watercolor :)
