Capturing Tulips

Pick me a Dozen




Last year I painted pink tulips two or three times and was barely satisfied with my result. I realise now that when the image painted in my head is great and the one on the paper does not match up to it, it is just a matter of technique or lack of it and given time and more practise the two images will move closer together. Tulips are out now and I have a lovely pink bunch sitting on the table in my studio. I am quite pleased with this 15" x 11" painting as at last it more or less measures up to my expectation.
