Duke's Tulips






Watercolor
Arches 140#CP

The annual flower display at Sara Duke Gardens is in full splendor -- tulips in all colors are surrounded by beautiful accent plants in cool and warm tones.

These tulips were inspired by one of their orange and yellow flower beds.  Between the fine spring weather, the glorious flower displays, and the greening of the fields and woodlands - spring has finally settled in!

Dear Lin - these are so awesome. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers to paint as well. This color is gorgeous. Wish they lasted longer. At least these will live on in your painting. Have a super day.
