52 Weeks of Watercolor Challenge, Week 2: Limited Palette

Week 2’s challenge is to use a limited palette of only 3-5 colors. I chose some cute orange pansies as my subject and used only yellow, brick red, and green. This was the first time I attempted painting pansies so you can see that my style changed slightly with each flower. By the time I got to the third one on the right, I got my method down. I’d like to paint this again as I am not happy with how the greenery turned out either. But overall I like it and I learned a lot, which is the point of these challenges.
Pansy Palette complete. On to week 3!
