Alizarin Gladioli

Middle-of-the-night, deep inky-maroon gladioli challenged me!
The Da Vinci Alizarin Crimson is semi-transparent, but the secondary top color had to be quite opaque, and i don’t like nor work well with opaque paints.
I painted them in my Nostalgie journal, and it is amazing the amount of wet paint the journal take — I had not realized how much water I’d use when I started in it!
Not quite what I wanted, but happy middle-of-the-night painter!

I love country… RIP Don Williams.
