One thing I know about flowers, and tulips especially, is they change quite a bit when you shine a light on them. What I discovered today when I painted these (twice) is - heat plays a big part in that. If your light gets hot you're going to be really frustrated when after 30 minutes your flowers have opened and even the shadows are different! If your light is cool (like an LED) your flowers don't change much at all, and in the end you have a sane artist instead of a crazy one!
