Hyacinths and tulips...just before they opened fully.
A day or two later.
It is always a pleasure to paint seasonal flowers, and these were no exception. I bought them in a German multinational to put on the chest of drawers in the bedroom in which my parents would be staying for a few days. Then I immediately took them away and told my mother that I needed them to paint, and anyway, weren't they better to be enjoyed by everyone?
