Solar Flare

Solar Flare

In the midst of a dreary weekend, I decided I needed to paint something bright, cheery, and sunny. 
Solar Flare is a tulip in such rich yummy colors that I spent all day Saturday and part of Sunday painting it. It made me feel warm inside and out. 

This is one of the paintings that I will be teaching for my Dynamic Watercolor Florals Workshop on March 17-18 at the  Coast Collective Gallery in Colwood , BC.
There is still space in the workshop but hurry and sign up before it fills!
To register please contact the Coast Collective Gallery at 250.391.5522
or by emailing them at
The Coast Collective is open Wed-Sun, 12-5pm

Beauty, Leslie!! I looked out the window this morning and felt the exact same need - something warm and glowing to paint!!!

Leslie Redhead Watercolors said...

Thank you Kathryn! Yes, you do need something cheerful to paint on a day like today. Perhaps some chickens? Or better yet, a rooster!

RH Carpenter said...

Delicious and what a great subject with which to emerse yourself in on a grey day!

Thanks Gillian! Meera, I am sorry about misspelling your name. I used my iphone to comment and it thinks it is correcting me.

Jane said...

Warm and wonderful and gorgeously painted!

Emille said...

Hopped over from another blog, and perused -I find your flowers by far the most beautiful of your watercolors! Great to meet you!
