This painting uses one of my favorite colors: cobalt teal (Golden heavy body), which I just noticed has been discontinued as I was looking for a page to which I could link for you. So now I'm curious as to how their regular Teal (without the Cobalt) measures up.
A big thank you to my friend, Kim Richards, for giving me some paper that she had already coated with black gesso that I used here. I think it was the first time that I used black gesso as my base and it was very fun and the colors just pop off the paper. I'm interested in testing out red, magenta, and orange grounds on some of my florals in the future.
