Pot of geraniums

An attempt to paint quickly and loosely a la Sue and Viv. Better than I hoped and I didn’t get any major paint splurges. You may detect a lot of dabbings with kitchen roll.

All my reds are in the magenta / pink end of reds but if I mixed them with yellow I got a dead red rather than a bright pillar box red. Is there a watercolour which bridges the gap between crimson and yellow?

I have gone to A5 for my recent paintings hoping that painting smaller will stop me being too detailed and painting everything too big.
