Watercolour done on 200LB Saunders Waterford "High White " rough with M Graham, W&N & Daniel Smith watercolours. 22" X 15". I saw these parrot tulips at a customers house and decided that these were one of the most beautiful flowers i had ever seen ,so i decided to get a number of reference shots to use and composed this painting with a diffused background so as to focus more on the flowers. this was another piece which i constantly had to evaluate the balance and strived for harmonious complimentories.
