"Tulip Farm" LaConnor flower field, landscape oil painting by Robin Weiss"Tulip Farm"

"Tulip Farm" 8x6 oil on panel
Well, I have decided that tulips are HARD to paint! Especially red tulips! This is another one that I tried to get the sense of being down among the flowers in the field .......not so successfully....The problem is I wasn't happy with the foreground tulips so I totally over worked them.

I think that I did better with this view.

Robin, love your tulips. I was up to the farms a couple years ago and wandered thru them. So wonderful!!!! I hope you do some of the other colors, too.

Gosh the tulips don't look overworked to me. I was admiring the loose brushwork which suggests you dashed this off on site. Whether or not you did, the piece has that quality of being right amongst the flowers. It's lovely!
