Remember the lovely orange and turquoise tulips that my daughter painted a couple of weeks ago? She thought it might be fun to show two different interpretations of the same painting using a similar color scheme. And while we painted side by side and used the same sketch, the results are quite different. In the painting above, I chose more vivid colors and added a soft blue sky plus a bit of sunlight. In the painting below, my daughter chose softer colors and omitted the background altogether. It was a fun experiment and we were both pleased with the results. I always enjoy our mother-daughter painting sessions.

These are both very beautiful, Jill! How fun it must be to paint with your daughter! These tulips would be amazing on a very large format. I can see either of them on a wall in an elegant home. 🙂
Thank you, Beth. That’s a great idea. They would make an awesome wall mural. I can picture them in Bethville, too!
Absolutely stunning, what talented girls you are!! 🙂
Thank you, Kelly.
A very different mood and “feel”. Both terrific. Great exercise!
Thanks, Elena. It was a fun exercise.
Both absolutely beautiful! Just love them. They may be my favorites now. You both just keep offering more and more beautiful paintings- each one better than the last!
Love the rainbow colors! Lovely to look at when the local weather report calls for snow for the next 5 days.
I love the rainbow colors, too. Is it snowing yet in your area? You must be in the area where a foot of snow was projected in today’s weather report. No snow for us so far this winter.
There’s no choosing between these two. It’s striking just how different they “feel” given the similarity in colors. Thank you for sharing them both.
They take me back to a sunny day long ago when I dreamed in whimsy and color! Thank you for that!
Thank you, Kathy. I’ve always been drawn to bright colors, and this painting gave me an opportunity to use them liberally.
