45. Tulips, 1

Done with daffodils, and moving on to other spring bulbs!  While we don’t have the snow to enjoy melt as the flowers emerge, we still enjoy their seasonal appearance.

Tulips were always my winter favorites, along with hyacinths.  We never had daffs or narcissus.  So, homage to a childhood favorite, the first tulips of the season.

I tried to make an orange using Quinacridone Gold and Alizarin Crimson.  Not sure how well it worked.  The ink is iron gall in a Hand Book.
