Scarlet and yellow tulips on the bedroom window sill – a painting a day

  11 inches by 6 inches, 27cmx15cm, watercolour on heavy weight rag paper

This is one of those, let’s get a fast impression of what the colours and the light are doing, paintings.

I always like to get these flame coloured tulips and sit them against a turquoise painted wall. The colours really start to zing. They are not quite opposites but close to the opposite. Then when the evening sun shines on them….

The jug came from my aunt’s house, it may have come from her mother’s it’s a little eccentric- like all of us who have not been cloned for average features and personalities.

I got called into the school and told that the GCSE course work was being worked on all the time my son and I thought it had disappeared; apologies were proffered for the distress and the delay that was admitted to…mmm I’m thinking.

The ground in the garden is already hard and baked in the worst beds, in fact one has already cracked. I am half way down the water butt and there seems to be no possibility of rain until the weekend.

However there are bits of the garden which are taking off the red leaves on the pieris have suddenly eclipsed its flowers.
