I wasnt' sure which photo was going to show the best color, but it seems like maybe inbetween. Anyway, I tried using bolder colors and especially, tried some dif. techniques like allowing some crawl backs in the paint for texture. I think the tulips got smaller and smaller but still will finish this.
On the left will be a silver syrup pitcher my Mom had when growing up! It's unfortunately melted on the bottom from being put on the stove she says, but has the M monogram on the front.
