New small work

Here are two 8x10 oils. First is a river scene from Arizona, in Cottonwood. Other is one of the new photos from my trip to the tulip fields.

Tulip Fields continued

Another redo on a tulip painting. This one is 16x20. I'm getting there. I did three sessions going over the thinly painted first version. Might do another touch up but am pretty happy with this version. The small photos don't do justice to the texture.

Tulip Painting

This is a tulip painting I overpainted using my palette knife technique. I'm preparing for some new tulip works so reviving some old ones as practice. They were painted thinly enough and are dry enough that there should be no problem with adhesion and I like the new version much better. I'm glad I didn't destroy some of the prior work I wasn't satisfied with. You never know....

This work is 12x16 and has been hanging in my stairwell for several years now.
