Tulips



Still working on this.

Trying to figure out what to do with the background.

Shall I fill it in or shall I leave it alone?

I guess I have a decision to make.

Maybe tomorrow.

Spring

A tree on my street stands with branches raised in a glorious abundance of pink.

The photo is one of many I took on my morning walk with the dog.

The daffodils are pretty well done. But around them the tulips are bursting out in every colour.

I can't get tulips out of my mind.

Two days ago I started a drawing of tulips.

It sits there waiting for me to stop and spend a while between little chores that get in the way.

Slowly it comes together.

It is starting to give me a sense of satisfaction as I watch it develop.

It is more decorative than true to life. But I like it so far.
