Parrot Tulips Pen and Ink with Watercolor Wash, Peach Parrots II, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Peach Parrots II
10x8 pen and ink with watercolor wash

Droopy tulips make for an interesting painting.  I like them straight and tall too, but after a few days, as the stems grow a bit, they usually start to droop over the vase,  so you need to recut them every couple of days if you want to keep them looking perky!  Tulips are the only flower that continue to grow after cutting... which make them a bit of an anomaly in the floral world.

This 'flock' of parrot tulips are was purchased by the same collector who also owns the previous posting of parrot tulips, they both look great in her beautiful home!
