Red Dahlias - Original Gouache Painting
This is a 12"x9" original gouache painting on Arches Coldpress watercolor paper.
These beautiful glowing red dahlias were such a challenge to paint! It was hard to capture all the detail yet keep it simplified and loose. Additionally, it was tricky to get the vibrant red/orange of the flowers. The blossoms looked stunning with a few stone fruits from the farmer's market.
