 I have been working on geraniums for a commission. This is my first study. The reds are a mixture of cad yellow deep, or cad orange and cad red medium or napthol red or both in the warm/lit areas. In the shadow side, the reds are alizarin crimson, permanent rose and napthol red. In some areas there is either purple or transparent oxide brown added fr the darkest reds. This little exercise was under painted with thin transparent colors.  The darkest areas were complete with the first layer of transparent darks.

This is my second geranium study. Again, this was painted with an under layer of transparent colors.
