Every year (except this one) I have bought tulips and planted them in large pots so I could have painting material in the spring. This past October was so warm and dry that I knew it would be hard to grow tulips because they require at least 6 weeks of cold weather to bloom. So I dug out my trusty artificial tulips and found a few photographs of tulips to paint this picture.
Here’s a technique tip: You can remove acrylic varnish with alcohol but you can make corrections on top of Liquitex gloss or matt medium varnish. Remember to reseal the entire painting with varnish when you have finished.
