I am participating in a painting challenge with one of my art groups. The challenge is to paint parrot tulips. These are so much fun, because there are so many varieties and they are so big and flamboyant with streaks of color in the ruffled leaves. My challenge is trying to paint these wet-on-wet. I keep getting my green background into the lighter petals and my red streaks won't stay put. I decided to let this rest till later in the evening and then finish. Here is my completed painting. 5 x 7 inches.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
