Fearless Friday, Tulips in Colored Pencil

Today we’re going to relax with colored pencils

and recreate this tulip art I saw on Pinterest

I was unable to source the artist

but I just loved the flow of the flowers,

the artist really captured the way tulips move and change

Just like the Pink Gladiolas we drew and painted a few weeks ago,

I began by drawing the flowers shape by shape

This time I started with the lower bloom

Then I drew in the top bloom and the leaves

If you want to color along there is a free printable here

I have several brands of colored pencils

One of my favorites is this boxed set from Bruynzeel Designs

It has four drawers holding the pencils in individual trays

for easy access

and the box keeps your desk top neat and organized

It is available on Amazon here

I used 5 shades of greens for the leaves, ranging from light to dark

The petals were colored with light and medium peach, yellow, pink and red

Color the lightest areas first, and build color as you go, blending

“Tulips” 9″x 12″ colored pencil on mixed media paper

Have some coloring fun and

Be Fearless!

I recently got some new sketch books that I am just crazy about

They are for mixed media and so far I’ve used markers,

watercolor, and colored pencils and the paper is fantastic for all

They come in a set of 2, 60 pages each,

spiral bound at the top and a durable hard cover

for a great price $18.99

You can get them here

  1. These are lovely, Jenna. I appreciate your drawings and how you break it down. It makes it much easier to start when one is somewhat drawing impaired! Beautiful, springy colors.

  2. Beautiful Jenna! Always something beautiful to look forward to on a Friday.
    I want YOUR pencil box!

    Tulips are such a nice invitation to spring. We have the leaves popping through in my neighborhood, but no flowers yet. Your art work makes a great substitute!
