Original Watercolor Painting of Tulips

Watercolor Painting of Red Tulips in Terra Cotta Pots
Red tulips seem like holiday flowers to me.
These were painted in watercolor on Fabriano CP watercolor paper,
using a variety of paint brands:  Winsor & Newton, Sennellier, Schmincke, etc.
I don't use just one paint brand.  The colors vary so much between brands.
For example, Hookers Green by Graham is remarkably different
from Hookers Green by Grumbacher.
So I make lots and lots of color charts, and then choose the swatches that
I like best.  I think I have favorites from almost every paint brand:
Winsor & Newton, Sennellier, Schmincke, Grumbacher, Graham, DaVinci,
David Smith, and a few others.
