Potted Tulips, Watercolor In Progress

Jewel's Tulips, WIP
10" x 14"
Arches 300# Cold Press Paper

You can see in the photos below what progress has been made since I began painting this morning. The gray that is seen on some of the petals and the paper surrounding the pot is masking fluid. The reds are a deeper, richer red, leaning more toward blue/purple red in the darker areas. The reference is from a photo I took January, 2004, in memory of my Aunt Jewel.

Leaf Mixture = Indanthrone Blue, Virdian, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Green Gold
Flower Center = Spanish Gold Ochre, Indian Yellow, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Leaf Mixture, Dioxazine Purple, Ultramarine Violet
Tulips = Holbein Scarlet Lake, Daniel Smith Permanent Red, Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Leaf Mixture
