Petal Pushers - Tulips Demo

15x22 watercolor of still life tulips set up in my dining room by an old oil painting. The light from the window behind illuminated the spring blooms perfectly. My hunter green wall adds a complementary punch to the vivid orange reds. I will be posting each step here as a demo lesson; this is the finished Petal Pushers on Saunders 140 lb paper.

This is beautiful! I love the way you have used the oil painting in the picture to carry the colours through the painting. And that dark blue background makes those colours sing!
