More progress on my large tulip triptych. I am focusing now on the play between bright, fresh greens and wram oranges and reds. The closeup shown is part of a 40"x60" painting of tulips. Oil on stretched cotton canvas, copyright Dena Tollefson

 

Adding thick, juicy daubs of white oil paint on the large tulip triptych. 

I am mindful of how and where I am placing the strokes of paint, my goal is to accentuate the feeling of movement in the painting and create a feeling of a mosaic.

If you look closely, you will notice the area on the bottom right side of the painting has a section of plain white canvas in need of attention.
