8″ x 8″ Watercolor Tulip painting

Recently I finished working on an illustration for a wedding invitation which I’ll share after the wedding. I was asked to paint in watercolor which is a medium that I haven’t used in many years. I thoroughly enjoyed the process. As a result, I plan to continue with watercolor for the rest of the month!

This particular painting is a copy of a 17th-century watercolor of the Semper Augustus, famous for being the most expensive tulip sold during the tulip mania. More about it can be seen on Wikipedia.

For the rest of the month, I’ll be painting watercolor sketches and offering them for $50 each. Some will be “copies” of early botanical artists. Others will be from my own compositions.

More work of flowers in pastel.
