The Tulip: time lapse video

A time lapse video: painting of a parrot tulip

This is a short time lapse video of the first painting sessions (1-3) covering the grisaille stage of the tulip painting (10x15cm, oil on wood):

Another painting session is needed to finish the grisaille stage, after which the painting can be worked up in colour and finally, glazed. I like working on wood as this surface is very smooth and the oil paint provides a beautiful sheen.

The tulip was sourced from Moyses Stevens florist in Chelsea, London.
