Dancing Tulip

New picture - same painting...
Well, lost quite a bit of blue out of the background and in the foliage. I'll take a better photo tomorrow weather permitting. Again I decided to paint the tulips. This one was quite rebelious and wouldn't sit still. Real flowers are nice, but they like to move - the flower opens up and the stems stretch toward the light. Very annoying when your subject doesn't hold still.

What does everyone think of the black background? Is it too much contrast? too dark?

I love the tulip "under natural light." Tulips are my favorite... Great job, as always Trevor!

Thanks Trinity - the tulips are turning out pretty well.
