Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork    

 

Given the small postcard size on which to paint I chose to paint tulips.The Parrot Tulips, have multi-coloured markings similar to the exotic bird and this phenomena inspired me to make two watercolours. I have often painted parrot tulips in other paintings, often on a larger scale.
