Of these, I like #2 best. It it is the most subtle. But hey, that is only my opinion.

I agree with henrik... #2 not only is the best for the reasons henrik mentioned but compositionally it's the best.

Only change I'd make is to put them off center a bit to the right.

henrik, arlene thanks again for your feedback.

The pastelists mostly seemed to like #3a & #4.

If time permits I shall try a few.....

Thanks again to all!

Arlene,

As I'm the one that's doing the painting, I personally prefer #2 or #3 reason is that the tulips are much bigger in size & on a paper of 8x12" it would be much easier to do using thick pastel sticks. I can apply the details more easily.

However, the majority prefers #4 which I also like very much as it portrays my message across very well, & I know my friend would most likely be in that catagory. But as far as trying to apply great detail, it will be a challenge. Nevertheless, I'm happy to give it a go. (BTW- I've started a thread in the pastel forum).

Attached below is my 1st soft pastel stick painting & the photo is not so great. (It was done before I found WC). Composition wise I just followed my heart. The size is 8x12" & I had a hard time doing it. (I didn't even know where I shoudl sign).

When I found out my girlfriend's fav flower is tulips, I thought oh no, no not again..... (I really wanted to try out different flowers)

Any comments on the composition? I'm still learning & I find all your comments so helpful to me.

Thanks
