New colors

I am trying out new colors for the Rock Creek Spring piece.  I am definitely not a "pink" person.  I won't even plant pink flowers in my garden, but the Eastern Redbud is such a striking tree that I have to make an exception for it.  Although it is hard to see here there are some outrageous purply pinks and yellow greens in this gamp.  The new leaves have the most amazing acid yellow green to them.  I hope I can capture that.

  1. Wonderful range of colors for your Rock Creek palette! One thing I'll always remember from trips to DC for the Smithsonian is the redbud and dogwood along the roadways. Go for the brightest pink you can, and the freshest yellow-greens.
