original sketch and studio assistant tired after all the advice. (only the sketch comes with the offer!)
If you don't ask for the sketch I will assume you don't want it and it will go to the next buyer.
Inspired by the beautiful tulips and beehives in our garden. I sat in our garden sketching this having planted masses of tulips last year - less than half surviving the visiting deer and mice.
After sketching this we went on holiday, I was itching to get back to start the linocut. All the tulips in the garden were over by the time we returned but I had my sketches as reference.
