This photo has been in my files for a couple of years now and I figured it was time to see if I could do it justice with a watercolor painting.
I was particularly attracted to the angle of the photo and the way the light and shadows played around on the petals. I will admit, the colors you see here are a tad more vibrant than my reference...but that is our option as artists isn't it? I felt the title Sunlit Tulips was appropriate.
I always thought I would use this reference photo for a drawing...I'm glad I held off and chose to do a watercolor instead.
