Spring Challenge

Today was a beautiful spring day.  The air was warm, the sun was shining, people were happy.  And I needed some colour in the house.

While shopping at the supermarket, I was drawn to a pot of orange/yellow tulips.  The intense colour ensured they went home with me and I could see possibilities of photos with the sun at the right angle really lighting up those colours.

I posted one of the photos on my timeline on Facebook and Rose Welty mentioned that it would make a good painting subject.  I suggested she'd be a lot better at it than me, as anyone who knows me knows I hate painting flowers.  But the gauntlet was thrown down as she said she would do it if I would.  I took it a step further and said I'd put it on my blog as a little spring challenge for anyone who wanted to play around with the image.

So here are the guidelines:

Click on the image to view it full size and save to your computer.
Paint, draw, etch, whatever with the image and provide a link to your finished piece on this post.
There is no timeline, simply enjoy and share the process.
Please use the image for this challenge only.
