This is the same tulip as the previous image with the peach color and touches of green. Here the tulip is 'all grown up' - almost fully opened and still showing off it's ruffles. I gave it some 'pop' with Nik ColorEfex Pro.
Flowers so often portray grace and personality and this tulip seemed to do that for me. The green leaves seemed to reach up in such a graceful way as if to embrace the flower. I had a texture that seemed to work well with this lovely tulip and applied it with 55% opacity in multiply blending mode and painted off most of the tulip.
WELCOME and thanks for visiting!
