Watercolor Crocus

This is wishful thinking...

I love painting crocuses and daffodils and I'm looking forward to my flowers blooming. I started out trying to paint this with only 3 colors - quinacridone magenta, new gamboge and cobalt blue. While they are lovely transparent colors and perfect for flowers, they just weren't dark enough for the background and a few crevices in the flower so I also used alizarin crimson, ultramarine, winsor blue, cad yellow, raw sienna and burnt sienna.
