The steps of creating acrylics paintings are relatively simple. You can start by painting the background in a darker and neutral color, or you can paint a sketch of the tulips vase and then start adding color. We preferred the second method. Our recommendation is to use a reference image in order to better create shadows and shapes. We used an image from, which features a vase full of tulips over a dark background.

Add layer of colors and do not settle for a single tone, use more shades and variations of the came color to create a beautiful painting: red, pink, light pink, purple and more. The background should also contain various darker shades of colors.
