The Princess and the Drama Queen ... or ... a Tale of Two Tulips

I'm still working on the top tulip here, placing a w/w wash of the under-glow color, drying, then a w/w wash of black.

Drama queen tulip pretty much done, except perhaps to darken the stamen.

Now I am working on boosting the colors on the bottom, the Princess, tulip. In comparison to the dark one, it looks rather washed out.
A grump is in order. The colors showing on the blog are pathetic. In reality, the background is quite dark, almost black on the left side, as is the dark tulip. If you'd like to see more what the painting is really like, I suggest you visit my facebook page. Is anyone else having this difficulty on blogger?

Thank you for dropping by, and your comments are always welcome!
