Canada Day

Happy Canada Day! I’m not much for themed posts but for some reason I love painting something red on Canada Day. My potted geraniums were the reddest flowers I could find, and for a change, I took out my tubes of gouache to sketch them. I don’t have a great range of gouache colours but luckily what I have includes Cadmium Red and Alizarin Crimson, and they work pretty well for the lights and darks of the flowers.
