My Niece’s Watercolor Tulips

Watercolor tulips in rainbow colors

My niece, Karen, also painted rainbow tulips then tried her hand at stippling with a micron pen, choosing colors to match each flower. She painted the cloudy background without the use of masking fluid, which can be tricky, but she did a fabulous job.

I’m still completing my painting since I spent more time as a host, helper, photographer, and instructor during our family paint-a-thon than I actually did painting. I’ll be posting my painting next.

    Lovely and delicate color! I am a big fan of using colored fine liners.and she did a terrific job adding detail and texture with them. The sky looks great!
