Flaming Red

Flaming Red tulips with crinkled yellow edges packed tightly together in a vase, give the appearance of fire flames rising up from cool green leaves.
It's the time of year when tulips are plentiful in flower shops and grocery stores... bundles of spring waiting to be taken home and enjoyed.
While painting these tulips my heart was beating a little faster... red, orange and yellow are exciting colours to paint and to view!

(I always enjoy adding the thicker paint textures, like you see on the yellow tones along the edges of the blooms.)
