Nice idea, more and more tulips ;)

There is harmony here, perhaps a little too much (but it is me...and you got the brush ;)

I would have cooled a little bit more the background - or light the main tulip.

I like the details (thin lines) in the petals.

Hi Byannick,
yes, you are right, this piece has a lot of harmony, I could sell it at IKEA ... I thought about using more contrast for the background but I wanted the tulip to be really part of the whole composition. Furthermore, it is placed in the center. This might have ended up even more decorative?!

As an abstract decoration I love it. It is bright, sunny, and full of joy and happiness. It is interesting how my mind right away starts to envision what kind of furniture and carpet will go with it … will more traditional carved furniture or modern glass and metal decoration suit better … you see where I am going.
