Painting with Blood Red Orange Juice

On Sunday I purchased the juiciest Blood Red Oranges I have ever tasted! On Monday I worked all day on a new coloring book I am planning on publishing soon. On Tuesday I wrote the copy for the coloring book to go along with the images.

Today I painted with blood red orange juice!

Why, you might ask? Because I can. Because coloring books are not only for use with crayons! Because the color of the juice was, and is, so rich and juicy I was very curious about painting with the blood red color! So I did.

I recorded my musings and experiment via video.

I bring it to you! Enjoy.

Notice how the juice reacted with the paper and turned purple when it dried! Thank you to North Coast Co-Op for their amazing produce!
