Tulips - Final
These are the tulips, somewhat improved over what I submitted awhile ago. I don't particularly excel at painting flowers (?!)and don't do that very much, although I enjoy seeing them and growing them. But, they just don't speak to my paint brushes the way other subjects do. Anyway, thanks to Barb for reminding me about that background upper foliage all going out of the painting.
I used a microfiber cloth for lifting out the highlights, particularly on the right blossom. I like the texture this method leaves.
