Tulips for Emily- second panel

i like the organic quality of paint created by this new paper. the scale and placement of the blossoms has an inviting quality.

i am looking forward to painting the third part of this triptych this week.

So lovely!! What brand paper are you using, Carol? I'm just now experimenting with a batch of Twinrocker I've been keeping until I was brave enough to use it (it's a bit pricey compared to others).

These tulip paintings are stunning! They have that same unearthly glow and energy that your swimmer paintings have...very powerful.
