Flowers 2, Maggie Latham, Watercolour

Loose and quick watercolour on Arches 140lb CP stretched pad.

I’m so glad that Arches came out with a small (8x8 inches) square stretched 140lb pad, as it makes everything so much easier when using lots of water. Woke up in a bright mood today and wanted to paint something bright using Quinacridone Magenta and Quinacridone Red (W&N) to see what colour this produced. Very quick one before breakfast.

Here it is in a mat.....colours are off because of the lamp.


  1. Maggie such beauty of a flower picture and soft. Love it. I am way behind I am afraid. I am into so much of other things I am afraid. I am trailing.

    Everyone's work is so advance and such brilliance in the flower theme especially.

  2. Thank you. Hope to see your work soon....

  3. Love the loose watercolor style and the reds! Very good painting and use of watercolor techniques.

  4. You know how I just love your loose painting! Charming!!

  5. These are so beautiful and the frame just enhances that!
