FLORAL TULIPS – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

FLORAL TULIPS - WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Some tulips were left on a windowsill and the sun came through the window behind them. I was taken by the contrast in light and shade. However, I dont think I captured the exciting contrasts of the light coming through the petals and leaves against the more opaque areas. I felt if I darkened further it would get muddy, but it does need to get darker to further bring out the contrasts. Some you win some…
I might try again with a looser version, however I did like the structure of the light interplaying with the incisions on the cut glass vase. If I got looser that might have to go.
I do have other floral work on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com if this interests you.
