I had mentioned a few posts back that I was working on tulips.....and it is the most challenging flower for me to pin point with watercoloring. Today, I was inspired by some real life photos of tulips and tried my hand at painting directly from the photos.
Here is my first attempt at my header photo that I have posted around my social media sites:
And here is the original photo inspiration:
My second painting is a single stem tulip, the sentiment is from an old SSS set called Giving Thanks:
And this came from a beautiful photo from one of my Instagram friends - Anne-Lie Dietz who hails all the way from Sweden. Here is HER photo that inspired my painting above:
I admit on both paintings, my 'pink' tone was much lighter.....which I tend to gear more towards instead of the darker pinks.
So fun, and so grateful for inspiration!!
Hope everyone has a beautiful week ahead!!
