"Rows of Red" Skagit county, plein air painting by Robin Weiss

"Rows of Red"  11x14 oil on linen panel        $800

I have painted the tulips in Skagit county a lot  !  These days I look for other views but those rows of color draw you in and it is almost impossible not to paint them.  This is the back side of Roozengaarde Farm .  The design element of rows of anything going into the distance is a good tool to bring the viewer into a scene.  The only problem, especially with tulip fields, is the over use of that element in many paintings.  I think this is a good painting just a bit cliche.

That being said, if you have been to the fields of color, this would be a good memory of your visit!

Have fun out there!  =]
