(Zen)Tangled Tulips!

When you’re tangled up, just tango on (according to Lt. Colonel Slade on one of my all-time favorite films, “Scent of a Woman”).


This is what I’ll be attempting to do this weekend as I untangle the remaining files on my desk!

We did manage to hit the nursery yesterday and brought home some beautiful violas and pansies, some of whom will be playing guest-starring roles as I paint their little faces in watercolor (or at least, try to lol).   I used three shades of green Inktense watercolor pencils to make this little painting.  I love watching warm and cool shades of the same color duke it out on the page.  I don’t seem to be happy when everything blends so perfectly.  There’s gotta be some renegade hues to zing things up a bit!

I wish you and your family a fabulous Easter weekend! If I see Peter Cottontail hopping by on the bunny trail, I’ll try and point him in your general direction. Make something lovely this weekend, and show it off! I wanna see! 🙂

  1. Oh how fun is this Laura!!! Did you mask off the tulips when watercoloring the background? Are the tulips painted pink? Did you zentangle over after all dry? Simply mahvelous! And I haven’t thought about that movie for a long time – I loved it too – makes me want to watch it again! 🙂

    1. Thanks! I drew the tulips first, and tangled them, then I wet the paper everywhere but on the tulips so that when I added the paint, it would flow only to the wet areas. It was a bit easier, since I used the inktense pencils vs. really wet tube color.

      I love that movie! 😀

I'd love to hear from you! Constructive criticism is most appreciated. Thank you!
