Very nice, Anita. I like the "welcoming" petals. Have you tried also vertical composition?

This one reminds me of an old master's drawing.
A wonderful glowing effect.

Your whole "painting" glows with gentle light within and all around the tulip which seems to lower its magnificent head at once proudly and humbly. It seems like a dying blossom fading slowly into the golden light behind and all around it. As the graceful outer petals peal away, you can see the same golden light/texture inside the blossom.

@JOEMULLIGAN: Thank you! This tulip was waning. Your description is beautiful.

Grand! The color is beautifully warm, and the two front petals look positively 3-D! Nice work on the texture.
