Art: Flaming Tulip by Artist Susie Barstow
Spring always makes me think of tulips. I really like the brilliant colors they come in. The pistil, stamen, etc. reproductive parts are fascinating to me. I love the wonderful example of mother nature at work, and the fascinating shapes they come in with tulips, they aren't all the same. This tulip is from memory of last year.. This tulip was painted with transparent watercolors and the light/white areas are where I allow the paper to show through. The layers of transparent watercolor give it a nice luminosity which shows up better in real life as well as it being brighter. It is painted on Arches of France 300# Hot Press watercolor paper with Winsor & Newton professional grade watercolours. It is treated to be protected from light rays and moisture.11x15"
