Queen of the Night Black Tulips is the newest daily painting in Flower Mound Studio. Based on my favorite tulips of the Dallas Arboretum, I washed transparent reds into shadow and light, laying in sea greens nearby to push the temperature vibration. I spread the paint like thin strips of butter in a pattern of shattered stained glass. It seemed fitting to put those juicy colors on as thick as possible and make that color bounce!
