Purple Parrot Tulip- Painting #8

6 x 8 in. Oil on canvas panel 1/9/2016

In case you haven’t noticed this about me…I LOVE flowers. Can’t get enough of ‘em. Of late, I seem to have fallen for parrot tulips. Although I got way too tired to really give her her due, I’m still very happy with this one. Barely drawn in really, I realized something doing this one…I let myself ‘feel it’ rather than faithfully try to capture it’s resemblance. I know I’m training my eye to do just that but a little imagination never hurt anyone. And boy does mine run wild when it comes to flowers. I can definitely see exploring her in particular in a larger painting much like Girl Ex L (Girl Explosion). This exercise is affording me the opportunity to ‘grow my garden’ as it were, and will give me many opportunities to meet new varietals in the future. I may do a weekly Saturday flower day. Yeah, that sounds pretty good.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll be here tomorrow with more. Welcome to week #2 you guys! :)
