Here's a new photo taken under natural light.
This one was taken late at night in my studio.
This lone tulip was a pretty good subject - didn't quite hold still, but she did okay. The longer I painted the more the flower opened up, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. I feel that I got the values correct and everything fell into place. It reminds me of a Paul Mann painting the way he only uses 3 values when he paints for magazines. I like the fact that I was able to nail the values and keep my brush strokes clean. Sorry about the glare and the bad lighting, but one of these days I'll get a photo cube and hopefully eliminate that problem. Until then I'll just wait til I have good daylight and re-shoot. It may take several days - we have snow forecasted for most of this week.
I'm not thinking of any good titles so please help me name this one... please post your suggestions.
