Tulips 2

This is my first of two paintings with this tulips composition. When I started the first one, I was not really in the mood for it, I'm into more earthy colors at the moment, and those bright red tulips didn't speak to me.
I started with it anyway, and went very rough with the brush strokes, at times too rough, wasn't sure if it would end well. I think it went OK, and it inspired me to do another one with different colors and not as rough. I really love the 2nd one.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous!!!! I love it! So expressive. I look forward to seeing more.
    Happy Long Weekend.

  2. I love these tulips and I love the color, but then again ...I LOVE color ! Have a nice day!

  3. LOVE this Roger - the way the tulip petals are opening but still closed in the center, a perfect painting for early spring. I can't wait to see the version that you like better than this one.

  4. Thank you for your support. I have done another 2 paintings of tulips as a result of this one. In parts they are a reaction to it, and in parts an inspiration.
