...more blood oranges! The wild flowers are only coming into their own now, so for the moment another blood orange wash. The daffodils have put on a gorgeous display, but for some reason I am not drawn to paint them, I have no idea why!
This wash was done using quinacridone gold, alizarin crimson, burnt sienna all added in various layers and wet into wet. I used candle wax to resist a final layer of the aliz crimson + quin gold wash to get a little more texture into the oranges. On Bockingford 140lb not paper
