Spring Blooms: Tulip Tree

The most beautiful time of year in Atlanta is spring. This is a watercolor of a branch of one of the many Tulip Trees in my neighborhood.

This is an 11 x 14 on 140# Arches CP watercolor paper. I used artist quality Winsor Newton watercolor paints. If you would like to see more of my work, go to my website.
