Rococo Parrot Tulips in Jug

This is a larger work, large for me anyway. I love these tulips, they have lasted so well, 2 weeks plus. I painted the Irises first - which was just as well as they didn't last nearly as long.
The work is nine inch square. Working with all the whites was fun this time - remember back to the snowdrops. A splash of complimentary colour was added with the bright green napkin. The knife was done with about 5 brushstrokes in all. It was the last thing I did which is maybe why I felt more confident to just go for it!
I don't think I will paint much larger - I covered 2 palettes with paint mixes and used them all!
