What do you get when you mix Janet's violet rose with Andrew's turquoise?

I was lucky enough to find a copy of the latest issue of The Art of Watercolour magazine on ebay - oh my, I so love this magazine! I have discovered so many incredible international watercolorists through the issues of this magazine, and this issue is no exception: I am so overwhelmed by the beauty and magic of the paintings by Yuko Nagayama, considered to be the premier watercolorist in Japan today. This little piece above is my humble effort at paying homage to her poetic and ethereal style. I was also playing with mixing paints and came up with this wonderful lavender by mixing American Journey Janet's violet rose with Andrew's turquoise.
Just another page from my sketchbook - playing around.

Hope you are having some fun and staying cool this summer. Thanks for stopping by,
