This painting of red tulips is a little more whimsy and a little less realism, but I love it. I think it's something about the colors, maybe. And I felt good about the feeling of the red color. Red is always tricky in watercolors, because it is so strong and it turns out very opaque if you're not careful. If you want to keep your painting transparent, you have to go very carefully with the red. I think you have to suggest the red, instead of really pushing it. I made some prints of this one, and they are available in my eBay shop and my Etsy shop.
