Tulip Bouquet

8"x6" oil on linen mounted on archival panel, $160

These are the last of these blossoms, they have since faded with all the rain showers we've had lately.  The sunny days that we have been lucky enough to have lately, I've spent painting on my back porch! Nothing like painting from life, outside on a beautiful day!

I think this is beautiful Roxanne. Having the mid values in the flowers lie against the mid value background was a gamble but you have pulled it off with ease. A really lovely piece of work.

THanks Sheila! I've got to admit, it was a bit 'hairy' trying to make sure every thing 'showed up' enough...that the value contrasts were strong enough & subtle enough... in just enough places! haha!
