190 Tulips in Glass Jar 1
Acrylic on 8"x10" canvas panel
This was painted in Patti Mollica's Fast, Loose, &, Bold painting workshop. With all of the paintings we did, we created a value plan first and then worked from the value plan and the reference photo to complete our painting.
This one was a timed 45-minute painting with a limited palette of 3 colors and white. I remember being frustrated because I couldn't use the "red" I wanted to get the flowers to be pink so I had to lean more purple-y in the darks. Patti helped me add the orange highlight to one part of the left flower and it really made things come alive. She's a really talented painter AND teacher. It's not always easy to be both! Can you tell I LOVED the workshop? I still have three more to share from the class.
