Tulips

by Abbie
(S.W. France)

Painted on Arches 140 Not, 15x30" and Windor and Newton paints.

Flowers are so difficult but thought I'd send my attempt of Tulips,(Spring is here at long last and I'm sitting outside in the lovely warm sunshine munching my first bowl of sweet strawberries,Yummy!) Would love to have a go at the clump of daffodils in front of me,they are waving their bright golden heads at me shouting 'paint me, paint me!' but little do they know how daunting a task that is!

Anyway, would appreciate any critics as am trying to loosen up and paint more freely.

Believe in yourself
by: Norman

Abigail (Joy to me!) has a talent beyond her own expectations.

Like so many other artists she looks to the work of other artists to compare her efforts with - this can be self destructive and suppresses natural talent.

I wish she would stop searching for perfection and realise every painting is unique in it's own right.

She has done some beautiful works in her own style and one day I hope she will be recognised for this.

With love to my very talented wife....Norman. x

Beautiful Tulips
by: Suzie,U.S.A.

I really like the almost abstract quality of your painting. The colors are very pretty. Soft and soothing.

Thank you
by: Abbie

Many thanks to you all for your kind comments - it has spurred me on to try even harder to achieve a more free and loose style. Although I haven't as yet participated fully on the website I keep peeping at everyones artistic efforts and am truly amazed at the talent out there - Well done everyone.

Quite beautiful

I love your painting. I've actually been kinda skiddish about using paint, but I think your painting has just inspired me to give it a try. I love all of the colors, the free flow, and the definition of the flowers wihtout looking to harsh. Quite beautiful.

I think your tulips are lovely. I also like the background colours. Well done Abbie!
PS I have the same target - to paint more freely.
