Tulips - a study

This painting is a sort of follow-up on the challenge entry, my focus was on selecting complimentary colours from the Munsell wheel. The composition is almost exactely the same as the previous painting with the tulips substituting for the geraniums and the vase turquoise instead of blue. I greyed down the turquoise table cloth and darkened and cooled the cloth in the background to provide contrast.


  1. Hi Mary,
    I just wanted to tell you (because I'm trying to catch up) that I love all of April. Especially the last two. Very beautiful colours.
