Hyacinth

Two days ago I received a flower pot of hyacinths that were just buds, with hardly recognizable color. But today they already started to open up. I want to paint them at different stages.
I used to think that hyacinths are very hard to paint, and they probably would be if you try to paint every little flower. But I got inspired by the paintings of two artists who showed me that the flower is even prettier when done with less detail. Judy's hyacinths here are done in a very beautiful free style, and Jane Minter's here are a gorgeous example of wet-on-wet.
There may be more hyacinths here in the next days, as my flowers bloom.
