A Tulip

Herald of spring,
It is beauty you bring!
Full of love and simplicity,
That’s what you are to me.

This time, I made a conscious effort to make this tulip in better detail but with a minimal time compared to yesterday’s violin. But I managed to finish that with 45 minutes. That’s not the best it could get but if I added more shade and make the color more vibrant, It’ll take me so long to actually finish that, but that will make a more realistic result. But I am already happy at how this turned out. It is hard to focus on both quality and speed at the same time.

Hmm…I can’t seem to get the moss green right. I only got limited pencils, and sadly the moss green isn’t included. In my place, you can only buy colored pencils on boxes, you can’t buy just one color. That’s why I pretty much make a balanced use of the colors as much as possible. I might go practice more on color combinations using the colored pencils. I might take a picture of my pencils to let you see what colors I use the most. 😀

I hope you like it. Have a greeaaat day! 😀

  1. Flowers are not as easy as they seem. I was trying to paint some flowers these days, too. Your tulip looks much better than my cyclamen.

    Well done!


    1. Thanks! And yeah, flowers are challenging. I sort of ‘get lost’ while doing the sketch of the petals. And each petals have different shades too. And the greens in the leaves need proper color combinations.
