A new series for the first day of spring

Watercolour flowers No 1 It is the first day of spring today. For the first time in what feels like a very long time we have sunshine and blue skies.  My first painting in the new series for this month feels rather apt, given all that.  Joyous tulips in happy colours.

I am taking a class called Watercolour Secrets with the lovely Miriam Schulman, over at The Inspiration Place.  These tulips are one of the class projects. They were so much fun to do, I decided to spend the whole month making more. So this month it will be a series of flowers (no faces, this time!), mostly 9" x 12" on 300gsm watercolour paper. I am using my delightful new Schminke watercolour paints... and hoping the weather holds!
