Feeling blue …

It’s been a while since I painted something floral so I decided that today was the day. I’ve been trying out some different blues recently and thought they would work really well as tulips:

 

I painted the background first and then sprinkled some salt over it – once it was dry, I scraped the salt off. I really like the effect that was created by the salt soaking up the paint. I’m also really pleased that the colour of the tulips allows the paint that is underneath, to show through.
