Another botanical

Variegated Foliage, acrylic (used as water color) on paper

Once again, I'm drawn to botanical subject matter! This one seems very tropical to me, though I didn't start with that idea. It is approximately 5 x 5". I started out with watercolor, which I often do - but, just needed to see more brilliance in the colors ... thus the acrylic. At the end, I decided to paint a hot tropical aqua line around the main shapes. Why? It just seemed to speak a need!

Helen, I like the outline and the cool colors against the warms. Nice painting!
