Tulips on the Way

Is there anything better than spring flowers after a long winter?  A friend brought this bouquet of tulips and the colors were so uplifting.  I decided to use a wash technique, flowing in lots of red and yellow paint,  letting it dry, (patience!) then slowly finding and "modeling" tulips out of the wash.

Que primaverales tulipanes, me gustaron mucho las lechuzas y pajarito en el nido también, espontaneas y delicadas acuarelas, felicitaciones!

A lovely feel to your tulip painting Christy, they are such a popular bloom as I see them several times this morning as I read blog posts from the other side of the world

beautiful tulips - I love tulips too and will probably be painting some myself soon, mine are just coming through in the garden. Love the colours and the looseness

They are beautiful! I love the different washes of color and how you angled them instead of placing them upright.
