"Tulip," 8x6, oil on canvas board
I love saturated colors, but to paint well you really need to learn how to use neutrals. They (whoever that is) say that as an artist matures, he or she moves from the saturated to the more subtle colors. That's a bit too broad a statement, but I get the point. And, yes, I know I have artistic maturing to do.
On this one, I wanted to try more subtle, darker colors, and I wanted to practice painting glass. FWIW, the glass is actually vertical, straight up and down, but I thought the rounded shape looked better. What the heck, this is my universe I'm creating.
