“Not everything is black and white”… Watercolor Painting

   Thoughts of Spring…

                         … working in Colour

Spring!  One of my favorite seasons.  I must say that I miss Springtime in Michigan, though.  After those seemingly long, cold and snowy winters, I always looked forward to the spring thaw when I would clear away the last of the fall leaves that had remained in my flower garden and await the daffodils and crocus’ poking their blossoms through the soil… and with them the tulips…a first sign of spring for me. 
Although my more recent work has been in black and white, Not Everything is Black and White.  I’ve been painting again and Spring Dance (after Tulipa II) and Spring Melody (after Tulipa III) are the happy result. They are watercolour with a bit of Chinese White which provides a sense of opacity in select areas of the paintings.  I just began The Bouquet (after Tulipa, Preparing the Bouquet) today… so more to come.  You can view the entire Tulipa Series in Charcoal Pencil on my website at CarolTaylorBlackandWhite.com
