Day Sixteen - Magenta Carnation

I have two favourite colours, green and purple and within those colours, I have a favourite shade - lime and magenta! I wear lime green a lot - my everyday winter coat and my new specs! I have magenta specs too and a magenta quilted jacket! You certainly won't miss me......

I have a purple beret but haven't found a lime green hat.....still looking!

  2. Love this painting and the way you make the glass just shine! I also am attracted to lime and magenta. Can't go wrong with that color combination.

    1. Hi Pam, thank you, I am sticking with those colours for a couple of days - it is lovely to have a flower to paint, after visiting the local florist!
