Vibrant red Geraniums represent summer for me! This is the first flower portrait I created for the 50 Watercolor Flowers Project. I love how long geraniums bloom, if you deadhead them they will bloom all the way until the forst frost in fall.
I used a few different reference photos for inspiration, here is one of them. For the flowers I used mostly Scarlet Lake by Winsor and Newton with a bit of Winsor red mixed in. For the shadows and darker areas I used alizaron crimson.
Check out my 50 Watercolor Flowers Painting Project post to see a list of the 50 flowers I will be painting and posting about for this project. As I complete each painting I make a blog post about it and link it in this main post.
