"Early Tulips" 8" x 8" oil on gessobord
I've been working like made lately on these tulips to get as much wear out of them as I can. I wanted to put emphasis on the shadow that the tulips are creating in this painting. You know how you can see the finished piece in your mind.....but you cannot quite make it a reality? Well, I want to try this again with the shadow on the right side and really make it pop out more as a dominant shape. This time I see the shadow and tulips are almost a mirror shape of each other. And I don't think that is a good thing.
"Pinks" 6" x 6" oil on gessobord
Same tulips, the next day. First, I think my picture is a little out of focus. I like thinks to look a little out of focus in the painting, but this was a mistake. I like do things unfocused as a technique. Thus, I don't wear my glasses when I paint. If I can't see it, it's not there. Great way to clean the house, too! Like my new little etsy teapot?
"Tulips and Lemons" 8" x 8" oil on gessobord
This is my last chance with these tulips, for they are spent from the hot lights. I added the lemons to this composition for a change and I haven't painted lemons in a while. I love it when the light shines through a cut piece of lemon.
