I love Gerber flowers. They are just such cheery and "friendly" flowers, and they come in so many gorgeous, brilliant colors! This is the beginning stages of an acrylic painting of a single Gerber bloom on a 30 by 30 inch canvas. I love how brilliant and clear the red is on these petals. The main color I am using is Liquitex's Naphthol Crimson, which is a transparent pigment. I first began painting in acrylic, with Liquitex paints, and I have pretty much stuck to this brand ever since. I have added a few colors from other manufacturers, but the majority of my acrylics are Liquitex. I understand how they work, at least for me.
