Quick loose tulips in watercolour

I love building up these images with lots of big loose splashy shapes - not too different from some of the tips I learned and loved from the last watercolour series. I think this is how you find your style. Not by trying too hard, but by painting a lot. Inevitably what you like sticks with you and creeps into your paintings no matter what you try and do. The things you love call to you.

I love splashy puddles of colour. I love the unpredictability of the water. And I love tulips.

What do you love?
