A friend brought us these beautiful tulips--ruffly and interesting colors. I was getting ready to take them to the compost when I fell in love with the shapes and undulations of the withering petals and decided to paint them. I used a board primed with black gesso which was quite different. I really like how the black background makes me think about the edges I'm working with, but sometimes find it a challenge to get the intensity of color I want. I did have fun with the positive and negative shapes!
