This is the first of four metallic colors in the Spring Set of Colorsheets by Viviva. I usually don't have much use for metallic colors, although they can be pretty fun decoratively speaking. Viviva's metallic colors are more transparent than others I have used. Depending on where you activate and pull paint from on the chip, there is a fairly wide range of metallic to color ratio. The metallic portions of the paint seem to float on the top with color visible from underneath which in this case worked for me. The opalescence rendered the waxy quality of the fuchsias nicely with very little effort on my part.

“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.
