Lorraine Brown - Week #7

I have wanted to include a painting of the Chinese Lantern plant in my floral collection for quite sometime and it still eludes me but I do feel I am getting closer after these little colour and wash studies.
Perylene Scarlet, Cascade Green, Quinacridone Gold

This is a little 7" x 9" experiment and whilst a good range of values can be made I am not convinced that I will do a proper painting using these colour choices so it was certainly beneficial to have found this out with a small try rather than go straight in on a 1/4 or 1/2 sheet work.
