    Anniversary gift for my husbandHello! New to this group, and amateur watercolor person. Making a gift for my husband for our anniversary and need a color for the Florida. Not very good with color theory. Just need a good idea for what would look good.

    • Sunshine, yellow and oranges.

      • Thank you…I was thinking that…my worry was that it was too much of a contrast out of no where. You don’t think so? Sorry…I am not very confident about what to do…

      • Also, I posted the current version in reply to Mary’s post…not sure if that would change your thoughts.

    • Such a beautiful idea. A light wash of turquoise and blue around the state.

      • Thank you…I can’t take the credit for the idea…I got the idea from something on Etsy. Anyway, do you mean the light wash of turquoise on the Florida and a blue surrounding it? What kind of blue? Cerulean, ultramarine? Also, someone suggested yellows and oranges….what are your thoughts about that? My original thought was yellows and oranges as a contrast, but I was worried it would be kind of jarring. I’ve added the updated version with more of it completed. Not sure if that will make a difference to your thoughts or not. IMG_9209
