Yet another take on my recent Tulip images.
I'll let you tell me how you see this as opposed to what I do.
It's always interesting to read the varied comments.
Thank you for v&c on Reaching Out. I did have another try
with extending the border which was a bit tight I agree.
Special thanks to Billy who spoils me with User Awards, bless him.

Very abstract and subtle image Kate, good room at the top, composition very good, should get lots of interest.

I see a wonderfully sensitive pastel that could have been painted by a master. A glorious image Kate.

I always say that people's personality is in their paint work,and as been said above(gentle and interesting lady) well I 'm sure it's true.
As I notice in school when the children are painting,,I can tell who's done them with their personality.
I really like this delicate work that almost look like a painting.Well done Kate againSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Cross-over between impressionism and abstract. A fine variation though, Kate.

This one I really like, Kate, as you have given the tulip an abstract presentation and the generally lighter b/g and texturing all work together with it very nicely.

I like the delicate touch of this, and the composition on the diagonal adds to the lusciousness of the image. Nicely worked. It's like a kiss of spring.
