I was in the produce department of the supermarket, when I passed the section with bouquets of flowers. There were little pink tulips calling me...so I bought them. I put them in a vase and was really enjoying them with all the dreary weather. I took a photo of them for future watercolor classes and then got inspired to actually paint them. I decided to try some hot pressed Arches watercolor paper I had purchased a long time ago and never used. Hot pressed is different to work on because of the very smooth surface. Not sure I like it as much as my usual cold pressed., but here is is.
