Thirty in Thirty Day 16 Tulip

This may be a WIP. Started this and scraped several times, even cleaning with paper towels and wet wipes. I am going to try to finish and maybe just work on the background and not the flowers with some impasto paint. At this stage, it looks more like a watercolor except for some areas of impasto that I left. This is usually where I make a mess of things. Heleni says I have great beginnings but somehow tend to over work... so is everything to be just a start?

Worked on this in class today... Worked on the background and intensified the tulip... having fun with wet on wet.

Oils on canvas covered cardboard
8 x 6"
