Spring flowers

Tulips and Crocus blooming for a local Artist Trading Card trade. These were created using a technique learned in Carla Sonheim's Flower Crazy class, with gesso and watercolor paints. Most fun!

Have a wonderful Friday! 

Sharing with the folks at Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.

Hi Helen,

Love the atc cards and the colours of the tulips are so vibrant and happy, they just warm you up looking at them : )
That workshop sounds like fun and the combo of gesso and water colour paints, interesting. I think I would like to try working with this medium.
Thanks for sharing,
Annabelle O,O

I've been making these too! Gesso and watercolours - this idea intrigues me. I would never have thought of it:)

I love gesso and watercolors! I like to use my watercolor pencils for a very subtle color--

Love the very spring-like colors here!
