Watercolour - A Bold Spring with Tulips
As a great inspiration of spring, tulips colour ranges from light to dark, single colour in one petal or multi colour s in one petal. No matter what colour it is, the form of flower is bold up from nature, it is the main feature we really want to catch.
In order to create a dramatic transition of light and colours, as well as the colour combination, I would like to conduct the lesson including different tulips here. We will study in details to make up forms of flowers, arrangement of stem and leaves, and complete them in an artistic composition. Background plays another important role throughout the painting that we need to treat it carefully.. You will be able to create your own watercolour painting based on your ideas.
