Camellias in Watercolor





I added a few leaves at the top, darkened the left flower and scraped out some highlights in it. The table top was also darkened in areas. This photo was taken under different lighting.







10" x 8" watercolor of camellias on Arches cold press watercolor paper. Reference photo by SweetBabyJ, Wet Canvas Reference Image Library.

I used Daniel Smith watercolors Quin. Coral, Quin. Red, Carmine, Cobalt Blue, Naples Yellow. Plus Holbein Scarlet Lake along with a Hookers Green and a Payne's Gray that was in my palette.

This is a super still life, Ann. I love those juicy shadows on the wall.
