red rose

I do not know what kind of paper this is. I have several brands around and this was a partial. It really soaked up the paint which explains how I got the deep reds. Now I wish I knew.
6x8 watercolor


  1. love all the variations of tones you achieved in this. It is beautiful, Carlene.

  2. Love how the petals are so well defined and how the background makes the rose pop!

  3. The reds turned out beautifully in this one. I know, I've had the same problem keeping track of my watercolour paper! I try to remember to write in pencil on the back, at the corners, but sometimes they sheet gets smaller and smaller!
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Happy Painting.
