Early Lupins

Early Lupins
By Tom Willa
Soft Pastel on Art Spectrum Color fix
8x12 $70
Lupins are another one of my favorite flowers. These beauties pop up a little later then the rhododendrons. I selected a split compliment palette for this painting. I wanted to keep the blossoms and the foliage in contrast, I think the palette helped achieve that end. The foreground details against the background abstract helps draw the focal area to the blossoms,too.
A reminder about the Tulip Image Giveaway get out there and make a choice to win.
Have a great day,
