Watercolor Wednesday: Flame Tulip and Pink and White Roses Completed

Flame Tulip/ watercolor/ 8" x 8"/ sold

This is day 22 of Leslie Saeta's Thirty in Thirty Challenge (link).

My theme has been color.
Today is also Watercolor Wednesday and here are the two completed small watercolors that have been worked on over the week (see post Friday, Jan 18- Monday, Jan 21)

I completed the tulip with thin glazes of aureolin, cobalt blue and scarlet red. I wanted the tulip to have more presence than the soft greens in the background allowed. Therefore, I darkened the the area beside the tulip with a thin wash of winsor purple.

The white rose was completed with thin glazes of all of the previous colors.
