I really like this. The overall color and pattern of the tulips is very appealing. It would be fun to see this in person. 18 x 24 makes for a lot of tulips. It is a very cheerful painting!:clap: :clap:

Yeah! This looks as good as the lilies. My only comment for both of them would be that you have drawn in the water line in the vase but doesn't appear to have any water there. Perhaps it needs a wash of white to look like the vase is filled. Do you know what I mean? In saying this, I haven't done a clear vase before and not sure how it will look. Shadows look better on this one too. Great job Tracey :thumbsup:

Reminds me of waking up on a sunny sunday morning. Birds singing and breakfast in bed. What more do you need?

Nice and cheeful Tracey. Good eclpises this time too.

A couple of Critiques:
1) The cup on the left side is at more of an angle than on the right. It's just an observation and could pass, as it does add to the quirkey nature of the work.
2) The two tulips at the back are in shadow suggesting the light source is coming from this side of the scene. In fact you have the light coming from the BACK of the scene so I'd have thought those two tulips would be well lit. Any shadowed blooms would then need to be this side of the bunch. Hope that makes sense.

I love a bright happy painting.

I just checked out your web site. What a wonderful collection of brightly coloured paintings. You have such an enjoyable style. This painting is no exception.

I enjoy viewing this one as much as all the others that you have posted. And I like all the quirkey-ness with this. It adds to the appeal.
