Tulipa 'Talitha' Stage Two

Here I have started to add watercolour paint. I always paint the whole picture with the palest colours first, it helps to define where everything is in the painting especially if it is quite complicated. I applied midnight green and neutral tint for the background using a no.2 brush. With the tulips I used a pale wash of quinacridone magenta and naples yellow for the stamens.
Next week I will build up the intensity of the colours.
