Blue Tulips

six blue and white tulip flowers

For some reason, I wanted blue tulips. I’m not sure what shade of blue this is. Maybe it was gouache? I have a jar of Winsor Newton Acrylic tubes. I’ve had this paint for years. I wanted to build skills with student grade paint. Now it’s the paint I’ll use to fill my journal with beautiful ideas like flat brush tulips.

Flat brush tulips? Yes, I like it. What I really like is the background texture! Stamping with dry paint and a candle lid creates an old wall texture. I’m talking about the buildings with walls that have been painted numerous times. There are murals and store ads. You know the walls that catch your eyes. It’s the color, it’s the stories, and the home feel. I suppose that’s what I want to bring to my work.
