Very disappointing. I had wanted to capture the sun on the tulips, the watercolour was chalky (cheap materials), and the colours I used were opaque rather than transparent. I tried again.
Well, a bit better. At least there is an attempt at light shining through the petals. Still not happy, so I decided to enjoy the tulip rather than agonise over it. I created a monoprint, then collaged it and sloshed colour over it. Much more fun!!
I then ignored the subject matter and just had a play. I created a coloured background then painted, monoprinted, and drew into it with a gel pen, lots of shapes from the tulips. A fun outcome even if some of the images are like goblets! Like a 60’s curtain fabric…..
