Tiger Lily abstraction 1


This is my 3rd painting that I have done with this subject, and it is the largest one. Going up in size doesn't mean that I want to do more complexed motives or more details, it can be the case, but it is mainly because I like to work big and I think I can really go for it with my lines.

    1. Thanks Nora. I had some decisions to make regarding the background, and I went with this one and I think I did the right decision.

  2. I agree with Nora -- great colors. The up close, tightly cropped composition is always eye-catching. I'm looking at your gallery to the right - the DPW slide show -- all your paintings look terrific! I especially like "Tree abstraction 19" (terrific colors -- and I really like that asymmetrical arrangement -- there is real movement to it), "Bowl with Fruit 4," "Waterlily Abstraction 1" (amazing colors and I love the use of the black line) and "Tree Abstraction 20" (great blues -- and that perspective is great). Good work -- isn't painting fun!? :)

    1. Thanks Julie. Color can be fun or a hell. It took a while, but I finally found out what I wanted to express with this one.

    1. Thanks Jana. I agree that orange Tiger Lilies look like they are on fire, and I had to fight the urge to use green in the background.
