Painting Freestyle Watercolors -Tulips

Glad to be back doing what I like,Painting flowers.Such a wonderful gift I received  from my dear friends in New York(thankyou Neetu) a book by Jean Haines -Atmospheric watercolors.I liked her writing style ,its as good as her paintings.Its a wonderful book.I am trying to learn  Jeans art of freestyle painting.The Tulips shown below is my first attempt.Painting this small picture I could  feel how I am restraining myself trying to add the right colors and right shapes to the tulips.I did breakaway a little bit but not all.The end result look lively than if I had tried to copy a real tulip flower.Just like Jean said I did have lots of fun throwing in some unusual colors into  the background before I even painted the form of the flowers I hope to  do more of this style  soon.Do let me know how you like this simple painting.

Phalaenopsis Blooms

Hi there,  this one is my favourite flower painting.I took a lot of time to perfect it .I almost abandoned it when I thought the  half opened flower on the left was ruined . But when it finished I was really surprised   at the life like quality of the petals.Hard work does pay off! Hope my viewers do enjoy this.

Flowerscapes-Tulip garden

The landscape with tulip flowers as seen in the Netherlands was my subject for my next  watercolor painting.Many people appreciated this one at the exhibition .The red tulips in the front and then mixed colors and the white tulips made good composition. The grasses in reddish brown color enhanced the landscaping. I was very pleased with the short wall .It was real fun painting this one. Do enjoy!
