I actually put the paintbrush down for a bit today and took some fresh Tulip pictures. Well, not so fresh as they've been waiting to be photographed for a good week now and are just starting to go a bit iffy.

My usual messing - bit of LucisArt and quite a bit of faffing with the background as the card I shot it against wasn't large enough so I had to extend it.

This is wonderful Alison.
Sometimes I think flowers look better just as they are starting to droop a little, you can get some amazing angles of them, as you have here.
Sorry if I've missed some of your uploads, had server trouble, but got it sorted now.

Hello everyone and thank you all.

These flowers were all droopy when I bought them - just the way they are I suppose - so I've had them tied up with ribbon for the last week trying to keep them in decent condtion for their portrait session.

There's just something about Tulips isn't there? ...

Oh I'm an expert at faffing Kate - I practise a great deal Smile

I'm afraid I have to give credit to the Tulips for their artful flopping though Merille - well, I chose which three to use but they did the rest for me Smile

Beautiful, Alison (I think we may have to invest in LucisArt - it produces wonderful results for you alongside your 'faffing' Smile). A super HC.

Thanks Allie - LucisArt was one of the best things I've spent my money on for a while. I just have to drag myself away from the Whyeth setting and experiment with the others Smile

Thank you again everyone! I'm just reworking this one to print out - it's ok for viewing on the monitor but needs a bit more tidying up before printing - I've rather a lot of spare wall in my living room that needs filling up!
