For Professionals Week (formerly known as Secretary's Day), my boss gave everyone in the office a bunch of tulips on Monday. (On Tuesday she brought in bagels. On Wednesday she took us all out to lunch. I like Professionals Week). I brought mine home to supplement the red tulips I got for myself on Friday.
These pictures are from Monday evening. Now, on Wednesday, I can say that the red tulips are starting to get a little faded looking--but they're still cool to draw so I'm not getting rid of them. I haven't started drawing the yellow ones yet, but they are very pretty and cheerful.
Who knew that at my age I'd suddenly start to love tulips?
They're pretty neat after the drop their petals too! The yellow are my favorite and your first shot is stunning!
(Didn't you get a nice vase as a housewarming or wedding gift or something?)
