Still Life

When I was learning the skills of oil painting with teacher and brilliant painter Rob Collins, I did lots and lots of still life - it is such an intense exercise in observation of colour and form.

I've not done much since but I was really enjoying some tulips a friend had bought me recently and had to paint them - whilst listening to Act 2 of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde - sumptuous music which seems fitting to the luxuriant richness of tulips...
