Detailed watercolor tulip

Detailed watercolor tulip - student project

Thank you Kanchan for this nicely detailed class! I have been following you for a while, and I could not pass on the opportunity to take your class! I love all your florals, and this one is no different. 

I tried to follow the colors and details as precisely as I could, and I am pretty happy with the result. The only thing that I do (it seems, often!), is that my darks are always darker than they 'should'. And as a result, I lost a bit of the yellow hue that was so nice in the reference picture. Matter of practice, I guess! So I added yellow afterwards, I think it is Cadmium, so a bit opaque and it sort of did the trick on top of darker layers of color.
