Day 25: Droopy Tulips

Once I’d finished painting them on day 21, I just dumped the tulips in this too tall vase and forgot about them.

Before long they started to droop and bend, and soon I was in love.

Apparently the trick is to fit the entire subject on the one board, who knew?

As if the flowers weren’t difficult enough, figuring out those leaves was a mission!

Not to mention the glass and water.

Eventually I stopped painting because I was too tired to continue. Thank goodness. I would have over-painted the crap out of it otherwise.

Lesson learnt: Time permitting, let paintings lie for a few days before finishing. Sometimes they’re done, and you’re too close to realise it.
