I was asked to do this poster to display in the shop I work in. We have a collection box for people to donate to NHS charities if they wish to during this difficult time.
These beautiful pale yellow tulips fade to white as they age. The pink tips on the petals are an interesting feature and fade with the yellow.
I was inspired to paint this after seeing them growing at West Dean College near Chichester where I attended an art course in January. It flowers from May to July and is so called because the leaves give off an unpleasant smell if they are bruised or crushed. Found in woods or hedgerows the bright colours of the seed heads and leaves make it an attractive subject.
