“Esperanto” a tulip – a painting a day

   size 9inx6in 23cmx15cm watercolour on heavy weight rag paper

I tried this tulip in the bed I took photographs of a week or so ago. It requires a pink tulip with a striped leaf. This is all of that but it does not work as the pink is just a little too far into strawberry mivvi territory. The only one I have found so far that works is New Design. There is a candy striped one which is too harsh.

Anyway I have painted it ,on its own it is a very pretty tulip and perhaps I should buy more and use them where they are not arguing with the pulmonaria. It’s a type of tulip called viridiflora most of them are interesting because of the colour breaks which streak the petals.

And then there was the political situation, a result for the LibDems?  Yes, a result for the country….I have my doubts.
