I just finished painting this red violet tulip today which I started yesterday afternoon. This is based from a photograph I took while walking along the house opposite 'Tea House Sprakel in het Bos' near the former military terrain in Twente in my area. There were other kinds of tulip blooming under the trees in front of the house but I found this type livelier to paint. This is in acrylic painted on 400 grams acrylic paper; and the size is 30x40 cm.
I just cannot get away with roses. Here is another one which I think I painted two months ago and forgot to post here. This is in watercolor and about 5x7 inches and done on Fabriano Artistico cold press paper.
In my sketches, I usually use the back of the paper of my unsuccessful painting. In this way I maximize the use of sometime expensive watercolor or acrylic papers. I like very much sketching, it gives me peace and pleasure. I did this small sketch of fresh carrots just after buying them from the supermarket.
I wish everyone a good and successful week.
