craypas tulips 2s

Once again I attempt flowers.  Tulips this time.

tulips old and new

I’ve done them in years past;  on the right, from 20 years ago as part of a bouquet.  On the left:  last week.  I think I’m doing better now.

As usual, with my left and right hands.

There’s a short window of opportunity with these flowers before the petals open up and then fall off.

And this is why I never get anything done…(these petals are beautiful…what can I do with them?…a butterfly!…let me take a photo…now it needs a background…more photos…)

    Fantastic stuff! I need to do more of this kind of work. (Get the bones down.) So expressive and immediate and lively. Way to go!

    Ditto, my fellow Memadtwo. This is a lovely post. Can’t wait to see the tulips emerge from under the snow in my backyard–soon, I hope.
