I am allways using Winsor & Newtons top quality  
"Artist watercolour". This painting is made of the primary 
colours plus Paynes Gray only.
I forgot to take WIP photos, sorry. But I can
atleast say this: I started up with painting the 
tulips very quickly. After they dried I mixed a light 
green/yellow colour and painted the background, and let dry.
The background is after that painted negativly with
Paynes Gray to shape the leaves.

Titel:Tulips. Size: 30 x 40 cm. 
Support: Daler Rowney, Fine, Cold pressed NOT.

  4. I am amazed by your color! I may be making a mistake by only using student paints! The Artist ones are so expensive! I will be following you more ;)

    1. The colours last long so I think they are worth it Roy. I use the cups, NOT the tubes. Cups never gets old. I highly recommend them. Thank you for comenting on my post.

  11. Catarina - these are so beautiful and cheeful as well. I love your background in the paynes gray - it just makes those lovely flowers fall out of the picture. Thanks so much for sharing.

  17. Lovely tulips.
    Catharina send me your email address and I will send you the pattern for that easel. Years ago somebody shared that pattern in a workshop. I honestly don't k ow where it came from. Is really nice tho because it fits in your suitcase or art case etc. not sure I should put it on my blog. There is one online. Lola like it was copies and them changed up a bit. Actually I have 2 diff styles. You can use heavy foam core. Heavy cardboard or thin wood.
