My Sister’s Watercolor Tulips

This is my sister’s second watercolor painting. Aren’t these tulips gorgeous? For this painting she combined two tutorials. The tulips are based on a tutorial in Fiona Peart’s book, “Tulips in Watercolor” and the background is based on a tutorial in Janet Whittle’s book, “Watercolor Roses.” What a great combination. You rock, sissy!

      I’m sure you can. It was a beginner lesson in Fiona Peart’s book, “Tulips in Watercolors.”

      Thank you. My sister will be pleased with your feedback. My sister is new to watercolor painting, but she is an accomplished sugar artist. She’s a master cake decorator.

    Watercolors are tricky, she seems to have figured it out quickly!
