Midnight Sunflowers

Midnight Sunflowers
Watercolor on paper, 8x6
Today - I am tackling a nocturnal flower painting in watercolor!  I am painting on a 140lb non-cold pressed Winsor Newton paper block, and I like it.  It seems to behave very much like the cold-pressed I have tried.  Have I gotten too bold on the color?  New on the palette today are quin. magenta and viridian - both Daniel Smith, and I really like the magenta!  It seems almost electric when used without diluting!  Once I had this painted, I felt like cropping off an inch on the left would make it so much better than the 9x6 size I painted.  So - I cut it off, and I have never done that before!  Trust me - this is better!  Painting number 605 in 605 days :)
