Colour from the Season - Tulip blue

Loud and in your face red tulips. It's not often I don't like what I'm doing for this colour research, but I did find it hard severing the heads of these two tulips to draw, photograph and then dissect. I 've been looking for greeny blues for months... there's been nothing (except firmly attached to a peacock at the Hunters Inn), so I was ecstatic to find this blue in the centre of a red tulip, what a brilliant combination! - and a smudge of deep purple in it's anthers to boot...

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
