Rembrandt Tulip "Mabel"
colored pencil with pen & ink in Moleskine sketchbook
May, 2012 ~ Utrecht, Netherlands

Yes, another tulip from our garden - now documented in my moleskine journal. I simply love the broken patterns of color on the Rembrandt Tulips. The Mabels also have such a lovely shape and color from beginning bloom to end of life. Plus, they are late blooming tulips!

Perhaps, one day, this will become a full drawing or a painting, but for now it's in my Flowers, Plants & Trees moleskine. :o)



tot ziens,
Judy
