Beautiful Demonstration of transparent watercolor by Janet Rogers, AWS
Her palette colors are Aureolin yellow, Permanent Rose and Cobalt Blue for the first triad. Quinachridone Gold, Permanent Alizarin Crimson and Ultramarine Blue for the second triad.
The preliminary sketch is in pencil. Warm colors bring elements forward and cool colors push back. Neutral shadows, hard and soft edges are added. Finally the feathers are brought out with grey shadow.
She started with a warm up exercise of Iris and Roses. Playing with the paint and changing values as you go, add movement to your colors. The brushes she uses are KingArt. She likes their spring.
