“I invent nothing, I rediscover.” Auguste Rodin
Mr. Rodin described perfectly what I’m striving for, to rediscover our precious world through my paints.
Tulip and Glass Study, is an oil pastel (8.5 x 5.5) painted on a gesso-prepared hardboard. For this painting the goal was all about developing contrasts in both values and colors – allowing the tulips and vase to standout against a supporting rich dark background. It was done as a study, I think for a larger size I’d paint the tulips more fluid with taller stems and the vase as long-necked – that would probably get me the vision for this piece I’m after.
