Cherry Blossom, the second in my swatches from my new set of Viviva Color Sheets, this one from the "Spring Set" is quite similar to the color tested yesterday, Vivid Red, but a wee bit pinker and reminiscent of Opera Rose. Like Opera Rose, a wash of this pigment over the top of other colors gives new zing to the color it overlays.
As with Vivid Red, this is another intense, staining pigment but with a little effort can be lifted somewhat, but not back to white very easily. Over time, I am sure I will get used to the differences, like the propensity to blooms, but not until you have walked away, cheeky little tricksters. I was able to soften edges a bit easier today than the first try at my new color sheets. I do love the bright, cheery colors they produce so far.
“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
