Watercolour Wednesday — Yellow Carnation.

A flower from my Valentine’s bouquet. There were burgundy and pale yellow carnations in the bouquet and I was in love with the yellow ones.

Though I had a terrible time trying to capture that pale yellow in my painting. It took me most of the afternoon and this was actually the third painting that I did. In the first two I kept killing the lovely lemon yellow colour with the white paint. In this one I used no white, just a lot of water to make it light and still keep the brightness of the yellow.
