No. 407 Midnight Tulips

Midnight Tulips
Oil on Canvas Panel
9 x 12

This painting is in direct response to a demo I saw recently. Russian artist Alexander Zimin was in town to give a workshop in Bellevue. Sadly, I wasn't able to attend the workshop but was able to view a demo. What a beautiful painter! He uses only natural light and does not crop in on his subject.

Mr. Zimin with the painting he created during the demo I watched. Amazing, right? I sincerely hope to be able to take his workshop he next time he comes to town. A huge thanks to Jan Jewell for talking him into traveling here from Russia and arranging this opportunity.
