Recently, I have done a series of different views of the same vase of tulips. This red and white edged bunch of tulips were the subject for six days. I begin my morning sketch drawings with a water based sepia ink to make the lines, afterwards I apply opaque watercolors. The ink sometimes mixes into the paint...

|day 3 moved in closer to the low hanging tulips|
|day 4 they were cut in half and given fresh water but they are drooping|
