Many pink tulips

I realized that I have not been posting for quite a while now. So here are some pink tulips that I've done as an exercise a few weeks ago. I am a little bit in a hurry to feel the beauty of spring season. Here in my neighborhood I usually enjoy the coming of spring by walking around where every space is filled with various flowers with different colors. Crocuses and daffodils are everywhere.
I used quinacridone rose, sap green, olive green and yellow ochre to paint these flowers.

Convent of St. John

This convent is located in Muestair, Switzerland. Mustair is a small village near the border of Italy and Austria. I was there twice, but the photograph I used for this work was taken in 18 October 2007. The convent is a UNESCO World Heritage and it is not so big. A visit at their museum, one can have view of the lives of the Benedictine nuns in the village.
     The size of this painting is 30 x 40 cm, in watercolor.
