Tulips at the Christy House

I painted these as a class demo yesterday (April, 2006). Someone had brought some nice tulips and planted them in the planters near the front door of the Christy house. My studio and gallery are in the house. It is a wonderful setting to paint in. Often in the warmer months we will paint outside in the gardens. It was about 75 degrees and it was a wonderful day to take class outside. Everyone did really well. This was my version. This piece is 9"x18".
