red parrot tulips finished

all done & in the shop!

These tulips were a joy to paint!  I usually follow my reference  photos
pretty closely, but not this time.  I just had fun painting frilly petals.

I listen to audiobooks while I paint.  This time it was Maeve Binchy's A Week in Winter.
Very enjoyable!


  1. Really, really like your tulips Carol, lovely!

  2. Love them, Carol.. gorgeous. I'd never thought of listening to a book as I paint. great idea! love,Diana

  3. The tulips are gorgeous. I've never listened to a book - I'd be afraid it would put me to sleep, but perhaps if I painted or stitched it might work. What else are you reading? I haven't seen a book post from you for a long time. I have just picked up Jane Gardam's Last Friends - I love her writing!

  4. I love parrot tulips Carol... I have painted them too.
    these are so well done.. congrats.
    I listen to music while i paint.
    happy painting.
