Wow! This is stunning. Very artistic.

I did have one question Ignacio - I see a little blue on top of one of the petals which doesn't blend immediately with the rest of the painting. Any thoughts...

Overall - This is brilliant. Congratulations!

A very personal interpretation, great job !

Hi Scott!
Well,the blue on the top of the petals is the result of what I wanted to do with the shadows...
if you look at the original picture of the Tulip,the petals create some Gray-Purple mixture...
it is just my "interpretation" and the strongest blue in the center is because I wanted to cover a little mistake that I wanted to get rid off...
I just wanted to soften the edges a little bit but I scrubbed it more than I should have and was getting "bad" I had to use a little bit more pigment to cover it up.

Nan,Lydie...Thanks for your nice comments!

I like the contrast between the geometrical lines and the curved flower. I 've seen your blog and i like also the paint you did with the yellow lines in the back. It seems to be your style !

Hi Sophie!
Thanks for your nice comment!
Well I'm just playing and trying to be creative...
I've been painting for a while and I'm a self-taught Artist....
I'm still struggling trying to define "My own" style...
it not easy but the good thing about painting is that we can try what we think is a little bit different...Sometimes works but sometimes don't...
The most important thing is to be brave and not to be scared of failure...
if it doesn't work,it's just paper.
and we can always start over!

Best regards.

Always love the background which perfectly offsets the focal point. You have your style, go with it and expand. Good colors and commanding composition.

Hello Ignacio:) Very innovative! You did a great job on this one. That's the great thing about painting: you do it just as you want to do it:) I love to see more work of you!

Nelvia said it all - the background takes the eye straight to the beautiful tulip!
