Pink Tulip Bouquet

Another tutorial from the book, “Tulips in Watercolor,” by Fiona Peart. I used only three colors in this painting–Winsor blue (green shade), permanent rose, and green gold–my three favorite colors by Winsor Newton. Watercolors on hot pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.

My Niece’s Tulips

My niece’s first watercolor painting–completed during our Memorial Day family watercolor fest. She was so proud of her work, and she should be. She did a great job shading the leaves. Watercolors on cold pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.

Family Watercolor Fest–Works in Progress

Since she liked the Poppies my daughter painted a few weeks ago, I chose this scaled-down version of the same painting from Fiona Peart’s “Vibrant Flowers in Watercolor” tutorial for my sister. She really rocked it.

My niece, Karen, chose a Tulip tutorial from Michael Lakin’s book, “Botanical Flowers in Watercolor.” My mother chose to paint an Agapanthus from the same book.

My daughter painted these Daffodils using a tutorial from the book, “Watercolor Flowers” by Wendy Tait as a guide. The addition of blue on the white petals really made this painting come alive.

And I’m working on this lesson featuring Tulips, Posies, and Hellebores from the book, “Tulips in Watercolor” by Fiona Peart. I’ll be posting photos of the completed paintings next.

Red Tulips in Watercolor

Here’s my version of the same painting my daughter finished earlier this week–a watercolor lesson featured in Fiona Peart’s book, “Tulips in Watercolor.” Watercolors on hot pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.

Watercolor Tulips

My daughter and I are really enjoying our joint painting sessions. Here’s a peek at her latest painting–a project she picked out of my new  book “Tulips in Watercolor” by Fiona Peart. She was experimenting with a much looser style today. It was a speedy painting; it took her less than an hour to complete but the results are stunning. Okay, I may be a bit biased.
