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.

  9. Good Evening Dear friend Shari,
    Apologies for my delayed response.
    Lazy and busy, but I have all your paintings kept in a separate file..
    This a beautiful work as usual.
    Your idea of using Cadmium Red and Alizarin Crimson, gave more attraction.
    Once again my apologies to you.
    All the best and good luck.
    Have a beautiful day every day, like your paintings.
    God bless you and your whole family.
    My blessings to you and your whole family.
    With love and regards
