Tulip Art

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:

Family Of Red Tulips
Soft Purple Pattern Tulips

Dark Purple Tulips Opening

Yellow Tulip Cluster

The Land Of Tulips

(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!!)

    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… 😉

    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 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 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 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!
