Pink Show- Hollyhocks

I had more fun with Hollyhocks today and decided to draw attention to their wonderful tall color spikes with this tall canvas. 

Sometimes when using color that is this bold, I check my values by taking a look at a black and white version which you can see below. While there is a lot going on, I still felt my value structure held it all together. It's a good test you may want to play with sometimes to keep things on track.

Great post Mary. It could also be a post on greens. Yellow greens, blue greens, green greens!
