I recently spotted the most amazing flower while visiting The King’s Garden in Ticonderoga, NY. I believe it is called a Parrot Tulip. Taking a break from watercolors this past month, I decided to “paint” this tulip with colored pencils. This colored pencil painting has 6-8 layers of pencil on each section. I photographed my painting every couple of days while working on it, in order to show the building of color.
And here is the final result.
