red yellow tulip

Watercolor, 30x40 cm
I finished working on this tulip two days ago. I took a lot of photos of the tulips we bought three weeks ago. And from those photos, I got my inspiration for this painting. I am not satisfied with the background but I think I should leave it just like that. I like more the colors of the original painting than this digital photo. Have a nice weekend to all.

  2. This is just the sort of flower painting I like..
    Always a single up close of any flower, does so much more than a bunch ... well, according to me anyway. LOL !
    Beautiful. !!!

  8. Gorgeous tulip, Cora!
    You could always paint another, with a different background - then I'd get to see a second beauty! xx
