WIP — Tulips

This is a 12" x 12" canvas I'm currently working on. I did the grey background on Sunday then came back to it yesterday after work and did what you see here.

This is still a WIP (work in progress), but I'm very happy with it so far. It will probably be a birthday present for my sister since her birthday is coming up and she loves tulips.

This is almost entirely cheap craft acrylics I picked up either at Michael's or Walmart. I used a white Sharpie poster paint pen for the white outlines around the leaves and some detail work in the flowers. It was the first time I've used it and I'm pretty sure I love it! I used the medium tip, but it's pretty fine. I also picked up the fine tip, but I haven't opened that one yet. Gotta love new art supplies!

This is what I used for inspiration.

It's from the cover of a free magazine I picked up at the grocery store. The bright colors against the simple and neutral background caught my eye.

What work in progress do you have going? I'd love to see, so please share your links in the comments.
