Jill's Rainbow Tulips

Remember the lovely orange and turquoise tulips that my daughter painted a couple of weeks ago? She thought it might be fun to show two different interpretations of the same painting using a similar color scheme. And while we painted side by side and used the same sketch, the results are quite different. In the painting above, I chose more vivid colors and added a soft blue sky plus a bit of sunlight. In the painting below, my daughter chose softer colors and omitted the background altogether. It was a fun experiment and we were both pleased with the results. I always enjoy our mother-daughter painting sessions.

  1. These are both very beautiful, Jill! How fun it must be to paint with your daughter! These tulips would be amazing on a very large format. I can see either of them on a wall in an elegant home. 🙂

  2. Both absolutely beautiful! Just love them. They may be my favorites now. You both just keep offering more and more beautiful paintings- each one better than the last!

    • I love the rainbow colors, too. Is it snowing yet in your area? You must be in the area where a foot of snow was projected in today’s weather report. No snow for us so far this winter.
