With all the whacky weather we have had this year and the long cold winter my tulips did not bloom until mid April.I took photos and have finally gotten around to painting them. I tried a different technique using acrylics paints on canvas. I painted the entire canvas a mid tone pink and then started painting my lights and darks. It was new to me anyway! I really enjoyed painting this way and will continue to play around with it. Texas Tulips is 5x7 on canvas.
