watercolor on paper 6 x 4.5 in./ 15 x 11 cm.

Painted this still life at night  using only a limited cool palette consisting of: lemon yellow, alizarin crimson, cyan blue, pthalo green, coeruleum blue and vandyke brown. It is very difficult for me to limit myself to only six colors!

I like both versions but my favorite is this one.  Can't put my finger on it, but I must like the complementary colors which makes the whole picture "pop."
