View Full Version : "variegated tulip"

oil on canvas, 30"x 30"
I usually prefer the drama of a black - or at least very dark - background, but maybe since it's Spring I'm feeling more colorful. What's your opinion? Is one working better than the other for you?
Feel free to comment on anything else as well.

Hmm... the greens in the background on the left are reading too dark on my screen. There really is more vibrant color there.
Colossal tulip! I think I like the one on my left (viewer) side but I like black too!

Very nice tulip, I would go for the colored background, has a nicer feel to it ;)

They are both beautiful. But, I prefer the one on the right with black.

Maybe it's just because I'm a fool for purple, but I like the left one. The right one is crisp and clean and very much your style, but it's a little too austere for me.

Hi Scott. Both are so beautiful. Looks like a photo...wow. :clap:
If I had to choose I am feeling Springy..and I like the 1st one - viewers left :wave:
I understand the left one but I would go for the right one........I like the added drama and the working of the light is stronger that way and the connection to the inner tuilip, maybe add some leaf green parts in the black version
Helpful or confusing ??????

I have to squint really seriously to see which one I would prefer.
Well ... I'll go for the right side one.
Fantastic tulip !

The black. The tulip is so perfect that the other makes me think its a photo.

Evenly divided. LOL That'll teach me to base my art on polling! Think I'll have to let this one sit a bit, maybe get some in-person reactions. Thanks everyone.

Scott, they are both beautiful--since I never use black in any of my paintings, I'm biased and I'm going to go for the one with the purple. BUT, in this case, because of your bold/graphic style, the black does look really nice.

Scott, mine is a compromise. I love darks but I think that a wonderfully complimentary extremely dark purple is the answer.

The one on the left is ok, it's a nice flower, contemporary.
But the one on the right is Drama[U] and you have to invision the full effect of a 30 x 30 piece, in a modern room in black and chrome and glass, perhaps a loft in Manhattan. Yeah! the one on the right,
