Yellow Tulip Painting

Posted in Art Work, and Peeking Behind the Easel

What a cold and snowy winter this has been…! Yesterday brought another inch or so and more predicted later on this week. So what to do? Paint spring flowers is what I am doing!

This week I finished a 6 x 6 inch painting of yellow tulips. I use photos of tulips I’ve taken over the years as my references. I chose warm yellows for the flowers because I like yellow tulips and for the warmth of the color.  The leaves are painted with blue greens and touches of purple. The background is a purple – azure blue blend to help pop the yellow tulips.

I like the 6 by 6 inches canvases – not too small and not too big. The gallery wrap canvas means no framing needed. You can frame it if you like, but the sides are painted so the painting looks great hanging frameless.
