Whirligig - Osteospermum

Here is one of my newer flower painting done in watercolors. I have discovered Quinacradone Magenta and Permanent Rose to make brighter and cleaner reds...
Whirligig.  
 I found this beauty on one of my walks and couldn't wait to include it on the series I am doing on gardens in my neighborhood. I didn't know what species it was so I turned to the Internet for research. Their scientific name is Osteospermum, Whirligig for short.

Watercolor 14x20 inches on 140# Arches watercolor.
It showed at Blackhawk Gallery, Danville, CA from November 2012 to January 2013.

Original available...
