11"x14" oil on linen canvas
This is another painting from my workshop with Nancy Franke. The tulips were really not this color, but once I mixed it and got paint on the canvas, I just decided that it looked great! Nice thing about painting, you get this thing called and "artistic license" and you can choose to use it whenever you want to, which is what I did here! I have pretty much stayed away from glass things so far in my still life painting, but am feeling a little more confident now that I have done a couple of jars and vases. It really is just "paint what you see," but sometimes my brain gets in the way of what I see and I try to paint what I THINK I see!
