Painting at the Tulip Festival

Here I am painting (with my little daughter's help)

Here is the painting (in progress)- you can see the "zipp clamps " I was talking about- they are hard plastic clamps that are tightened when the "t" bracket is put in place- I love using them, they are so convienent and they do not mark the edges in any way

Purple Tulips

This is my painting from the first day of the Tulip Festival, since I had my daughter with me this year, I decided to do all watercolors this year. I did all quarter sheets arches 140 lb ( I typically prefer hot press, but I decided to give cold press a try again, and I like it, so I used both) I strecthed my paper using fabulous zipp clips
