Tulips and Metal

"Tulips and Metal"
6" x 6"
oil on gessoboard

I've challenged myself with a complicated composition this time. When I looked at these warm red tulips I instantly wanted to paint them with metal for dramatic contrast. It was interesting to compare brass and aluminum. The bowl is quite old and lost its metallic shine which made my job a little bit easier.
