Proud Tulips

Lovely soft feel to this, and super use of colour

Thank you Pat, for your very nice comment on my butterfly and portfolio! It is much appreciated and helps me alot, as a fairly new painter. I am trying to find my style, if one can do that, which is why so many different subjects. Do you find it helpful to paint what you are attracted to, or what you think others will be attracted to? Do you have any pointers on finding a personal style? Your work is very lovely Pat, I like it alot! Thanks so much!

Thanks again Pat, I appreciate your feedback alot!

I love the delicate colours in this painting. Nice composition too

I think this will look better unframed so I shall leave it as it is.
