My Daughter’s Watercolor Tulips

Rainbow tulips in watercolor and micron pen

My daughter went wild with color and decided to paint each petal a different color. How fun is this? She added texture using micron pens in colors that closely matched the paint color and chose to keep the background white so as not to compete with all the vibrant colors and fun texture.

Coming up next: my niece’s painting. I still haven’t completed my painting. Looks like I’ll be having another late-night painting session or two.

    Wonderful idea with the petals, and I think the fine detail makes a great texture! A very pale blue sky (or pink! or orange!) might work well too. (Or maybe next time!)

      Oh, a pink or orange sky would be fabulous.

    This is gorgeous! It’s almost like a mosaic.

      Yes, it does look a bit like a mosaic. Thanks, Jennifer.
