Orchid and Quinacridone Colors

I went to the town yesterday. I normally go to visit the town around the famous Singapore orchard road area for dinner, meeting friends, buying art supplies or simply to take a walk. It is very good sometime to get the modern and metropolitan feeling. The creativeness seeping from everywhere in the town reminds me that whatever I do, I must try to learn to do it in an innovative way.I am so excited that I bought a tube of Quinacridone Rose yesterday. I always want to try the Quinacridone colors because they are very bright, but cannot find any in the shops. This is the only tube I can find. I should try to buy them from Internet next time because it is really good. Look at the orchid with quinacridone rose, it is so bright.
This still life is inspired by a photo of a women with a red Chinese Cheongsam in a fashion magazine. I like to put orchid with an oriental structure such as the window.

Thank you Marian!

Quinacridone colors are synthetic organic paints while normal ones are made from natural resource minerals and earth. It just like you have cotton cloth and artificial fabrics. Quinacridone colors are very bright.
