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.
