Scarlet Tulips

Beautiful Val David Harrison

Wow Val...this is 'shockingly' good! The colour just sings....beautiful watercolour.

A lovely warm blaze of colour to brighten a dreary day Val!

Absolutely beautiful Val top drawer for certain I love it

Thank you David, Fiona, Christine and Dennis for your lovely comments. Fiona this was painted mainly in Scarlet lake, hence the name, with touches of quinacridone red, perm alzarin and indigo plus a bit of cadmium yellow pale.

It absolutely Glows, Val. Love it! Just what we need to cheer up these dark days!

Thanks for the info Val.....I'm ashamed to say that I haven't even heard of a couple of those know my usuals; blue, brown and yellow!!lol

Beautiful and vibrant

Wow Val, what a riot of red tulips! It's fantastic!!! The colour combination is just right!

Many thanks everyone for your generous comments they really are appreciated.

Beautiful and vibrant colours. A lovely painting!

Brilliant! Such glorious colours.....

Many thanks Lorraine and Avril.
