Alexei Antonov

Antonev uses Madder Lake Deep for the pinks on the rose petals. He favours Flake white (lead white) which is slightly transparent. Titanium white can overpower colours mixed with it and produce a chalky effect unsuitable for delicate petals.
Other colours used are: yellow ochre light, prussian blue, and ivory black.
Chinese vermillion is used for the intense red tips of the petals.
