These glorious blooms were painted from my garden. I worked from my reference photo and sad to say I no longer have tulips in my garden, as the deer have destroyed them. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers and a sure sign that spring has arrived. These graceful blooms were wonderful to paint. The colors are bold and delicate at the same time, and I have painted them over and over again. I used a variety of pigments; Lemon, cadmium yellow light and Naples yellow, which is more opaque and a good mixer with other colors. The bi-colored tulip was painted with quinacridone red, magenta and purple. The deep blue background was painted wet-in-wet in sharp contrast to make the flowers pop.
