Red and Green

I was inspired by many images scattered across the internet.  Most notably were Japanese Maple leaves, spider lilies (so creepy yet so beautiful) and some six-petal flowers that I've forgotten the names of.  Didn't intend to only paint reds and greens, but I think it looks quite nice.  For some reason my phone's camera completely washed out the values, so think of this piece as being more...abstract...


This was done in watercolour on mixed media paper (it held up surprisingly well!)   Minimal layering and colours as I have a rather bad habit of using too many and making everything muddy.  Less is better it seems.  The gradations on the centre left leaves (green -> yellow) were a complete but happy accident!  I had too much yellow paint on the brush and was quite surprised, but I think it looks nice.  (also yes, my palette really does have that many shades of red.  You totally need to have 38527937982 different shades of the same colour, right?)
