Tulipa 'Talitha'

Tulipa 'Talitha'
Fringed Group, Liliaceae
This painting in watercolour and gouache was based on photographs I took at Keukenhof  Gardens in Holland. The gardens are a delight for tulip lovers. The 'Talitha' tulips stand out from the crowds because of their spectacular fringes. These are the first part of the plant to show signs of fading and the contrast of colours really show them to advantage.
