I showed the final painting to a few people before this post and not one, not two, but THREE people told me it reminded them of the Flintstones’ house.   Fred and Wilma, I’ve renovated your place.  You’re welcome.

Quin colors

A while back I got a box of Quinacridone colors from Daniel Smith.  I’ve used them on occasion, but decided to do a test of all of them on watercolor paper to see all the colors together since many of them are similar.   Here they are in all their Quin Glory.  I had started the painting at the top using some regular watercolors, but decided to add some of these colors to the mix.  I like the splash of Quin Pink in the bottom left corner of the painting.

And again, for no reason, here’s another picture of my dog.  Hey, get off the bed!

Woof
