This impressionist painting was made with expressive palette knife gestures in oil on 11 x 7 canvas. With over 7 shades of green, made mixing blue and yellow, providing a nice contrast to the pinks and purples of the tulip’s heads.
The wild tulips in this painting were inspired by my former neighbour, whose garden had beautiful tall tulips. They are also the flower that I gravitate towards when I want to cheer myself up, particularly soft pink ones. This painting is a depiction of wild tulips.
A dominant front row and the little guys in the background swaying in the wind. I showed a time-lapse that I made while painting this piece and you can view it here on my social media. The oil is as thick as 1cm in parts and the variation of greens and pinks were a joy to mix.
As with all of her original paintings this will be shipped free of charge.
A little bit about Tulips
Tulips are a member of the Lily family, Liliaceae. There are about 75 species. The name ‘Tulip’ is thought to originate from a Persian word for Turban, which the flower may have been thought to resemble. The flower is believed to have originated in the Tian Shah valley in the border region of Kazakstan and Kyrgystan and was found naturally in an area stretching from Southeast Europe to Central Asia. Tulips are used as a decorative feature in celebrations for the Persian New Year and was associated with the House of Osman in the Ottoman Empire.
Tulip Festivals are held all around the world in places ranging from the Netherlands, Morges in Switzerland, Spalding in England to various cities in the United States and Canada. Tulips are also very popular in Australia, where various Tulip festivals are held in the Southern Hemisphere Spring in October and November.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.
