Fearless Friday, “Reflections”


I have been crazy for tulips lately, and that includes drawing and painting them





I found a picture of vases of tulips on a window sill and couldn’t get to my studio fast enough





I was eager to try another painting with a red underpainting {the first one I did was Pink Flower Therapy here}





I worked fast and loose with a limited palette plus some heavy gel to thicken paint





After establishing the location of the tulips I painted in the background





Filling in the negative spaces so I can go back and add more leaves





Next, back to the petals





The tulips are sitting on the window sill and reflecting in the glass





And last adding the vases with a few strokes of white and bluish gray





Just a few strokes to suggest the glass vases





Less is more!



“Reflections” 22″ x 28″ acrylic on canvas




Paint on and Be Fearless!
