This painting is inspired by an image of a field of tulips in media res. Clearly I have worked away from the original image abstracting from it only the biggest shapes and colours. So it isn’t a painting of tulips it is a painting about shape and colour and how they flow and interact with each other. Like all my paintings I look to find a pleasing sense of rythm and balance in the overall design.

As well as shape and colour this painting has the added dimension of translucency: see if you can identify this (not so obvious on screen) in comparison to the poppy painting which is mostly flat and opaque.
