Tulips and Persimmon

Most of the detail work in the flower petals is done, and I'm moving towards finishing up the silver details in the bowl. I have been concentrating on the lively reds of the tulips - keeping the color bright, but also ensuring a sense of the depth of the color as well. Not easy with red! There is just a bit of depth that I will be adding later to certain areas, but more as I fill in the detail of the surrounding set up. This painting should take on even more drama when I layer in the deep purples and reds of the drape, and the playful texture/color of the tulips will prevail as the focal point. 

Stay tuned! I will update as it progresses. As always, please feel free to comment or ask questions!
