Quinacridone Red
Titanium White
Primary Magenta
Vermillion Hue
Cadmium Red Hue
Whispering Turquoise

I’m loving all the pinks and golds right now for spring! I know it’s abstract, but I like the floral vibes. It looks like watercolor from far away! Great job and cute kitty!

This is great Lynn! I never thought to include gold leafing in my art before. I am definitely trying this out next time. I’m currently painting new wall art.

This is beautiful, I love watching your technique. And that gold leaf adds so much. It looks great in your daughter’s room.

P.S. I Love You Crafts says:

Very pretty! I love how you incorporated the gold leaf. I have some golf leaf flakes, but I’m not sure what to do with them. Beautiful!
