Still Life with Tulips and Lemons

By flowerpower59
I can't decide if I love these tulips or hate them, but I bought them because they are the type that were so precious in Holland in the 1600s. Some of the most coveted varieties were tulips that had lines and streaks rather than a solid colour. This effect is actually caused by a virus that 'breaks' the colour on the plant. Back in the day they were literally worth their weight in gold. These were 1.79 in Aldi Grin

A bargain! And a very good still life you've created with them.

I love the tulips (read Tulip Fever) so I know how much they were valued in the past.
I like your Delft Vase and the blue cloth - not to sure about the white cloth - Maybe less of it
if you want to keep some white there.
