"Amaryllis"

Watercolor

I've wanted to paint this for a long time and finally did. Our nephew brought these to us at Thanksgiving almost two years ago! I got some really good photos of them with great shadows in our den with the light coming through the windows. I had to use several glazes of reds to get my desired effect. Reds are difficult in watercolor. I used a purplish background because of the color wheel - reds, yellow-greens and violets do very well together! It was very fun to paint this.
