Tulip Tree Blooms

This tulip tree was a Mother's day gift years ago - and I LOVE painting it each spring as it grows and bursts with blooms!  I started with an ink sketch with an extra fine nib - rare for me, but I'm learning to add it to the mix.  More often than not, I am using a medium or even a broad nib, for my ink work.  Next, I added watercolor to the masses.  I realized today that I haven't used my gouache set in a while, so I even added a little gouache for extra chroma.  It is relatively new to me, and I had forgotten about it for months.  Well, it is now back in rotation for the spring!  Painting number 3751 in 3751 days.
