Here is an update of the tulip painting.
The third tulip has been added as well as more lily leaves

Just added a comment to your previous thread about the tulips so I won't repeat myself here.

I think the third tulip addition will be interesting to watch develop as you bring it up to meet the other two in values. It is nicely drawn and adds a slight diagonal to the composition which I find interesting.

I couldn't help but notice that you DO have a couple of tulip leaves along with the "hybrids"... The third tulip is coming along nicely and I like that it's facing the other two... For some reason, I expected you to nestle the third one in between the other two... This was a pleasant surprise!!

I think you could just chop the tulips' heads off and still have a beautiful painting, the leaves are just fantastic and you must truly have the patience of a saint.

Looking lovely!!!!! (with the heads, of course HA!)

Your painting continues to be stunning.

I love the colors you've chosen, the shades, the way the picture is full, but simple.

I really like the 3rd tulip & the way you paint your leaves.

Oh, yes, your composition is singing:music: Could it be "Tiptoe through the tulips?" LOL
