On WetCanvas there was a class showing how to paint tulips with just one stroke. I did the painting for the class but wasn't happy with my color choices. I wanted to try the "one stroke" technique again. This was interesting because the flower on the left didn't turn out very well and I went back over it with a couple of layers of glaze. . . I can really see the difference between it and the other two! I used DS paints, Quin Red and Quin Coral for the petals -- love these colors together.

These colours are beautiful together!! I have to order some more quins, as I have hardly any.

I like the tulips you di, including the first one, because just as in nature they are different and have their own 'character'.

Beautiful, Brenda!
