In these tulips, I have used a lot of paint and they are very heavily textured. So much that the texture is quite visible in the photo itself. My husband was not very fond of this. He feels that texturing works fine for irises, but tulips would be better off rendered smoothly. I had a great time painting though, and intend to continue this way. I'd love to hear from you, what do you think of the textured tulips? Works? Doesn't? Any thoughts?
