Playing With Gold (4”x6” watercolor)

playing with gold I have some new art supplies [thank you!] and I just couldn’t let another day go by without playing with them.  It’s hard to see in this photo but the lightest gold in these sugar maples is Schminke’s Horadam Gold…  it’s mica that gives this paint it’s lovely shimmer.  I chose the sugar maples as a natural subject for trying out this paint.  I suppose this little painting might suggest that I am looking forward to fall.  I wish to deny this up front – I am really enjoying this summer weather.  Ciao!
