Tulips in Mixed Media
Here are my tulips on another of my mixed media canvases that I made last week.
I started out painting the tulips in watercolor like the other flowers I have done, however, I think the background was darker than I realized, so I ended up painting them in acrylics.
Then yesterday I went to Michael’s to get more canvases and found a package of what I thought were butterfly stckers. When I opened them, though, there were lots of other plants, etc. in the package which was fun! But when I peeled the backing off, it was just the paper of the butterfly, so I had to use my matte medium to glue them down.
I will probably try doing my daffodils next, then the sunflowers. I haven’t decided whether or not I want to try painting the Peonies yet. I am thinking about moving on from flowers after the next two paintings to something different.
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
