Kelowna, BC - Canada

Lovely work, Ken. I'm impressed with the foreshortening of the petals that bit always stumps me. Love the sharpness of the indigo background..... did you use indigo or layers of other blues? Indigo is my absolute power color when I'm painting watercolors!!!

Ken Powers replied:

Thank you Carrie! Very nice of you to have a look! For the background, I mixed Prussian Blue and German Vine Black which are both from the Rublev paint company. I used four washes of roughly the same mix and applied one after the other while the paper was still damp. This helped even out the brush strokes but built the intensity. It still allowed some character to come through so there are areas of the background with subtle color variances. I didn't mix a big batch of the wash, I just mixed as I went to help create the effect. I am still experimenting with these dark backgrounds.

Tampa, FL - United States

Lovely. :)

Ken Powers replied:

Thank you Carol! You are too kind!

Black Eyed Susans 2


Ken Powers


Painting - Watercolor On Paper


This is another addition to my floral series where I have been experimenting with dark backgrounds. This background has a subtle hint of Prussian Blue to it which helps make the flowers really pop out of the composition. The original is painted exclusively with Rublev watercolor paint on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper and is 14.25"x10.25" in size.
