Tulips, Watercolor...11 by 14 inches (28 by 35.5 cm)
I usually paint precisely. I deliberately tried to use a casual approach for this painting. For the first pass, I used a Steve Quiller brush, a series 7000 Richeson Professional, number 12. The brush holds a lot of paint and has a nice point so it is good for wide washes or fine details.
I was concerned that I would lose the light edges of some of the leaves so I roughly covered them with liquid frisket.
I began adding stronger values to the leaves.
I wanted to see if the light edges were the way I wanted them so I removed the frisket.
