Propagate

The strange but beautiful Tulipa acuminata is no longer found in its natural habitat (Turkey). It has been propagated and kept going as a species since the early 1700s - quite amazing

This is a beautiful illustration, Nicky! Fantastic background too - is it digital or hand coloured? PS I had a good giggle at that baby picture - it is very cute - and not a bad hair day at all! I wonder who you were looking and smiling so michievously at?

Nice color and lovely movement in those lines :)

Beautiful lines! Lots of beautiful movement, I have to agree. I can almost see them swaying in the breeze.

Such delicate tulips! I adore the turqouise background.

I love how the background gradient turned out...and also the purple and light yellow blend in so well and harmonize the surrounding.

Good job Nicky!
