Big fan of tulips, here. Any color, any kind. A few years ago a few fellow painters and I made a trip to Holland to paint the tulip fields. We did our research, but ended up arriving after 5 days of a freak heat wave that killed all the tulips! No matter, we found one field that was being mowed under, and painted like crazy. Then we went to Keukenhof , a gardener's dream come true. Also Holland itself was very beautiful, and paintable. I will definitely return. The Van Gogh Museum alone was worth the trip.
