WHITE TULIPS (2006)

I began this painting on the 20th of May, 2006 and finished it on the 4th of July, 2006. It is an oil on canvas and consists of two pieces both measuring 100cm x 120cm making the overall size 200cm x 120cm. I was inspired by some white tulips I actually bought one day, and it was while I was watching the flowers move in a kind of waving motion that I felt that I could see the spirit of these flowers. This is the reason I painted them, it is my attempt to capture this spirit on canvas. This is the first in a series of tulip paintings, in the others I changed the colours of the flowers. The oil paint is not diluted and is applied to the canvas using many brush strokes with a small brush. With this technique I am able to create a sense of movement within the painting. It is a very long and tiring method but it actually helps me find those spiritual values I feel when painting.
