Red Tulip Tree

9x12 watercolor vignette on 140 lb cold press Canson paper done this weekend.  Also known as saucer magnolias, the tulip tree mimics the flowering bulbs.  I've put ghost images behind the red blooms of other flowers in light washes using pale opaques such as Peachy Keen, Apricot, and Coastal Fog by American Journey paints.
