Red Tulips in Glass
Hello, I painted this a few weeks ago and had such a great time painting it, one of those paintings that kind of painted itself. Every once in a while it goes like that and it is such a pleasure. Glass can be great fun to paint, trying to paint the colors I see and then use the highlights to finish it off. I have an Analogous color wheel, google it if you aren't sure what it is. You choose your dominant color on the wheel and it shows you the complement color and two other colors called "discord", colors that you might use in a small amount to direct the eye where you want. This painting with the red and different purples are considered dominant and adjacent hues so hopefully it is pleasing to the eye. It is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.
