It's been some time since I did a really detailed and complex watercolour, so I set up this still-life in the afternoon sunlight of my studio.These tulips in a complex glass vase just appealed to me although a passing thought was this might make a better alkyd oil painting, but I'm not sure my skills in that area were ready for such a challenge. Anyway, here it is. Image size 14" x 17" on 300 lb. Arches cold pressed paper, using W&N Artist Quality colours.
