Tried these tulips recently in acrylics on a artboard that I had. It is a 8 x 10.
Had trouble blending the first tulips with the reds. Thanks for looking. Lil

Looks good Lil - I like the bold colour.

If you're after realism, check the way the stem blends into the petals - if you're not after realism, then this is fine:)

I'd also give those two front leaves more definition and care to show they are foreground and in front of the lovely central tulip.

Thank you everyone, I went back into the painting and softened the front tulip since I felt that the red was to sharp and defined the bottom leaves a bit more. Thank you again. Lil

A strong ,bright image - I was looking back at some of our garden in Spring photos today and this is very like what I saw - the same almost unbelievable richness of colours.
