I wanted to share five of the art prints I created from my tulip photoshoot in April. I used a soft watercolor technique on all five prints. I certainly had a number of shots to work with and I narrowed those down to ten. After working with all ten and satisfied with what I had created, I saved them and didn’t revisit them until the end of last week. I spend so much time with each print making numerous changes, etc until I feel like I have a completed piece of art. I found over the years that by “sitting” on them for a week or two, I can view them with a lot less bias and narrow that group down to what I like the most. I go through the narrowing process a few times until I don’t see the need anymore. Having said all that, following are the final five:
(on a personal note: our third grandchild entered the world this last week. He is our second grandson and arrived on the projected birth date….go figure. All are doing well!!)

Congratulations on your new wee one. 🙂 Tulips are beautiful.
Thanks for stopping by and the feedback!! We are so thrilled to welcome our newest grandchild into the world!!
God Bless you and your family! How wonderful to have this new grandson to enjoy. Your tulips are most enjoyable as well. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for the well wishes Annette! He’s so dang cute!! I had fun creating the tulip prints…..thanks for stopping by!
Tulips are my favourite flower and you did an amazing job of these. I can not pick a favourite.
Thanks for the feedback Darlene!! Much appreciated!!
And a huge Congratulations on your second grandchild! Enjoy every minute.
Not sure how I missed this one Brad…sorry….Thanks!!
No worries. Enjoy your weekend Kirt!
I love them! Tulips are such a great subject for art. I’d be hard pressed to pick a favourite of these – the techniques are all slightly different, and they all work!
I feel the same about my artwork – I only paint for a couple of hours a week, and I’ve been working on an acrylic of irises for weeks now. Every time I think it’s done, I prop it up and look at it for a week, and find more fine-tuning to do. Maybe next week… 😉
It’s a process for sure, but one that does work!! Thanks for stopping by and for the feedback!!
These are all wonderful Kirt, but the one at the top is so peaceful looking. I feel myself being drawn into it.
Thanks Dan!! I appreciate you stopping by and for your feedback!! I had fun creating these prints!!
Beautiful prints, Kirt. That “sitting back and letting things rest” happens in writing too, so I’m not surprised that it works for art. A way of getting a fresh look. And many congrats on the new grandchild! Enjoy your growing family!
Thanks Diana for stopping by and for the feedback…,much appreciated! We are loving our newest grandchild and it’s heart warming watching our youngest daughter and her husband turn into parents!! Have a great week!
Great images Kirt. I love tulips and this watercolor effect for them.
Thanks for stopping by Brad and for the feedback!!
Congratulations on your new baby grandchild! Sing praises that all are doing well.
I love all the pictures… tulips are such a beautiful sight in the Spring!
Thanks Nancy!! I always forget how small new borns are and how fast they grow. We are loving every minute of it and it’s fun to see how our other two grandchildren are responding to him via FaceTime!! Thanks for stopping by and for your feedback on the tulips!!
These are beautiful! They certainly deserve to be on a gallery wall.
Thank you very much! I appreciate your feed!!
Hearty congratulations Kirt and such beautiful Tulips. I love tulips and all your paintings are superb.
Thank you for the congratulations and your kind words!! Much appreciated!!
You are always welcome dear Kirt 🙏🏼😊👍🏼
Congratulations Kirt and family!!! Tulips are the perfect welcoming!!! 🌷
Thank you very much Tiffany!!
Congratulations on your 3rd grandchild, I bet you are over the moon! Your prints are, as always, stunning!
Thank you very much Gill for your kind remarks on my prints….much appreciated!! We are over the moon with his arrival!! We love spending time with him….not that he does much more then sleep at this point:)
These are wonderful Kirt. You always offer something different with each piece you share and I appreciate that. Your editing process is similar to my own. I think often times less is more. Here all the images go together nicely in technique and vivid color. My favorite is the last … I like the near and far.
I can’t thank you enough for your feedback Denise! I truly appreciate your input!!! Thank you!!
Congratulations and fabulous print.
Thank you very much Charlotte!!
Thanks are beautiful! Congratulations on you new grandchild, Kirt. They are so precious! They make us smile, they make us laugh out loud, we get lots of kisses, they test our patience, and we love ‘em to death!
I so agree on the grandchildren. We have three, this little guy being the newest addition. They bring us so much joy, as our daughters did raising them. Thanks for the feedback on the tulips….have a great week!
