http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/20-Mar-2010/191496-Tulips.jpg Sharrm...love the colorful pics....First one caught my attention with the graded colors across the fields. The color field almost cut the photo in half so I chose to lose the sky and keep a dark background focusing on the tulips. Drew lines for direction and on dry arches paper with a big round brush I started washing in the dark background leaving whites for the houses. Proceded with oblique lines of color for the tulpis....when dry added suggestion of people. This 11x15 was painted in about an hour not counting drying time using Daniel Smith colors. jbg

Thank all of you for your encouragement.....EP the painting is on #260 Winsor Newton. It is a soft paper and really absorbs the water and pigment. I overstated colors from the beginning for that reason. jbg

Wow, this is a dazzler! I thought Yupo at first, too, because of the bright, fresh look.

GORGEOUS!!! I love everything about it. Such vibrant color as only you can do.
Why not cross post it over in the Landscapes forum; am sure those folks would love to see it.

Cross posting just means when you post it over in landscape to put that it is a cross posting from WDE. Just to let them know it has orginally been posted elsewhere.
BUT...back to the painting - beautiful. I have nothing but LOVE for it. Absolutely wonderful....

Wow! This is so wild -- loose and effective, it really shows what's going on. Of course you used the Daniel Smith colors. I just bought a bunch of strong bright ones and grinned when you said that, because I too love how saturated they get, how pigment rich they are and how little it takes to get that strong color. Go you! Great painting!
