yellow and orange tulips

This tulip painting looks deceptively simple but it was time consuming and challenging to paint. I found the giant tulip on the left to be particularly challenging since I had such a large area to cover. The orange areas on the tulips required several washes to create an intense color. I painted the yellow areas first and then washed the orange on top; however, the next time I will reverse the process and paint the dark orange first and then apply a yellow wash on top. Each painting is a learning process.

This painting is for my sister with much love.

  1. Wow, so pretty! I’m not sure why you think some of these things look simple – they do not! (To me, anyway. Haha.) So beautiful with that large one in the foreground. And then those smaller yellow ones. Just lovely!
