Tulips, Oil 6 X 8


Hello, I did this painting on a 6 X 8 RayMar panel. My first tulips, I used a gray green for the crock. Love those grayed colors. Do you think the bowl should be a different color? I like the dark background and the crock and tulips but I thought maybe the bowl should be darker???? Appreciate your input. Have a great day! Barb

I don't really mind the bowl that color, but you may be right about it looking better darker. Why don't you cut a piece of paper that shape and paint it the color you are thinking of and lay it on top. If it looks better, change it. If not, nothing lost, something learned.

Hi Frank, Thank you for your suggestion, that's a good idea. I didn't want the light bowl to pull your eye too much. That's why I love you keeping an eye on me I get such great advice. Barb
