Claudia's tulips-

My friend Claudia was leaving town for a week. She scooped inside her car and presented me with a lovely bunch of flowers, vase and all. So I didn't have to go hunting for subject matter . But I did make the mistake of wanting to paint the whole bunch at first. Not wise. So I only have a watercolor rough from the sketchbook to show you.
I was really pressed for time as the day progressed but I did, I did, manage to finish this acrylic.(and I won't say that the colours just don't look as good after scanning because you know that don't you?)
 Don't chew more than you can bite.
 Lesson learned!

love the way the colors are so unexpected in the acrylic. You are the tulip queen, that is for certain.
