"I'm Just Too Picky..."

...I have NO favorite color...Seriously!
My color "faves" are fickle and fleeting.
My choices
depend on my mood, or my subject, or my medium,
or the time of day, or...whatever!
I truly have NO single favorite color.
But...I will confess...I do L*O*V*E them all! :)
And,
my latest watercolor loves are the Daniel Smith Quinacridones.
They are so hot...and sultry...and juicy...and energetic.
Mmm-mmm-mmm... "Oooh La La!"

Oh lala! :) It's great. Enlarged it looks fantastic. A sensual feast! (is it normal that my first thought was that I'd gladly eat those colors?)

What a wonderful flower - and gorgeous colors. Agree that I just love color - and also can't choose a favorite this week. I always examine each of your sketches for your extra ink doodles and this one does not disappoint!

What a joyous ode to color!*smile*
I haven't done this challenge because I can't choose just one color either...I'm leaning toward greens at the moment...

I am addicted to color.
Call me a coloraholic.
So I totally relate (again) and the really funny part is I have these same colors!!!

These are beauties!

I agree it's just too hard to pick one. For years my favorite was yellow, blue and white with a touch of pink and green. Yes, well now it's the same plus red, purple, turquoise and orange. Guess I like all but brown and black but they have their place too.

this is an interesting topic, favourite colour/s. I always thought that red and yellow were mine (and i guess i do still use them a lot as i like vibrancy! but more and more i love blues and specially aquamarine...ooh and peach...
these colours are fab!

It is difficult to choose a 'favorite color. That isn't a fair question. I tend to like my colors strong what ever may be striking my fancy at the moment.

Thanks all...I find it comforting that so many of us feel the same way about so many things...I love that about blogging...and especially sharing my artistic interests with each of you...Thanks so much for all your visits! :)

Thanks! Handy chart, I have Q. gold, burnt orange and magenta I think that will cover the rest....maybe the burnt scarlet... Sienna is nice too.... stop me!!

Serena said...

I love all colours too, Margaret....it's just way too hard to pick a favourite nowadays. As a child, I loved lime green, my teen years was purple and now, if I absolutely HAD to choose, it would probably be turquoise/aqua tones, or maybe orange, or even blue....you see....I just can't pick one. lol

Fantastic drawing!!! The colours are so vivid. :)
