Past its primePosted: April 6, 2016
I think this bouquet started out too beautiful to paint. I tried it when it was fresh but because it was a perfect arrangement of tulips, irises, daffodils, freesia and hyacinths — each one a different colour — I couldn’t make it work. I waited a few days until the blooms were past their prime, sagging and shrivelled at the ends, and then tried it again. At this point the colours have softened and faded, making it a somewhat easier target to capture.
