So here is the other finished watercolor painting of the bright yellow marsh-marigolds. This is a continuation to my aquatic series.
I was inspired by a stream next to a road where there was huge bundles of marsh-marigolds almost everywhere along the stream. The flowers were bright yellow against the quite dark and murky surrounding.
For the painting I made the water a bit brighter, without trees covering the stream and with bright blue sky and hint of a warm sunny day. I made this fully using watercolors; pans, tubes and watercolor pencils. (and in this I worked the background washes around the flowers, no masking fluid used like in the second painting of the same topic)
This painting is currently in a group exhibition, ‘Kimmokkeita’ with a few other of the aquatic paintings (the waterlilies).
