Big Bunch of Tulips

 

I’ve been working on some larger flower paintings over the past year. It would seem as though making a loose, painterly flower image would be simpler on a larger surface, but I struggle. Moving paint across an 8 x 8 surface is a lot different than a 30 x 30 panel. This painting has been reworked three times, but now I’m feeling pretty happy with it. It has a loose but structured quality, the color palette earthy, and the strokes loose but purposeful.
