Quinacridone Rose Abstract Floral Watercolor – 8×10 on 140lb Arches Cold Press
Splashing in Quinacridone Rose and Gold.
A little diversion from my recent watercolor animal rhyme series back to one of my favorite things to paint – loose, abstract, impressionistic florals!
I broke out my brand new 20ml tube of Royal Talens Rembrandt Artist Quality Watercolor Quinacridone Rose that I won for FREE from Charlie at Doodlewash for #WorldWatercolorMonth. It was just one of 15 amazingly huge, juicy, luscious 20ml tubes, along with 3 beautiful bottles of Ecoline Liquid Watercolor Paint and 4 markers that I will have hours of fun playing with.
Quinacridones are a favorite of mine. For this painting, I used three colors, Quin Rose, Quin Gold, and Olive Green (DS) in some big and some small layers and bubbles and strokes.
Oh what fun it was, and I kinda love how it turned out. This one is going into our McKinneyX2Designs ETSY shop, where I sell original paintings, prints, and cards, and my daughter-in-law, Colleen, makes fun and beautiful rustic signs and decor for the home from reclaimed pallet wood. (Feel free to check it out and help us spread the word! And as a thank you from us – if you refer a friend who places an order and lets us know they were referred from your name via the blog, we’ll send you a free box of cards – your choice! AND if you place an order and let us know you saw it here, we’ll also send you a free box of cards along with your order!)
Thanks again, Charlie, and Royal Talens North America for the beautiful Rembrandt Paints! I LOVE the Quinacridone Rose and find it to be as lovely as my Daniel Smith and Winsor Newton versions of the same color.
Can’t wait to experiment with more!
Cheers & Hugs,
