Tulip on Canvas

By Irishkate  
Taken in then garden - a tulip which had fallen over at a lovely angle.
I placed my painted canvas underneath so no need for added textures.
I'll upload version without border and a different crop for your approval!
I was surprised and delighted with response to the the Struggling Tulip
and special thank you to Graham (digital_boi) for his User Award - you
never know what is going to appeal, so it's worth experimenting!

Definitely v3. It is much more refined and, to my eyes, quite beautifully done.

Three delightful variants Kate, each worthy of a vote in their own tight. For me image three is the stronger with its strong square crop, as I feel the somewhat noisy border in image number one detracts from the beauty of the tulip, whilst the elongated landscape format somehow feels stretched and over worked. Just one point of note regarding all of the images, I do feel that the background is to harsh both in texture and colour. I one were to reduce the opacity this i feel would allow one to focus fully on this beautiful bloom.

Well let's be honest, they are all lovely Kate. But I like V2 as there is more of the leaf showing.

Wonderful, but I like the framing without a frame most. The tulip looks great against the canvas background.
