Spring Breeze - Watercolor Painting of Pink Tulips by 

An original portrait painting in watercolor of beautiful spring blossoms of pink tulips dancing in light breeze, with photo-realistic depiction of one blossom as the center of focus, and dreamy, soft-fading background, hand painted by award winning watercolor artist and daily painter Arena Shawn. It looks great both in photo-frames on the counter of your personal space, and on the wall of your living room. It’s an ideal gift to an avid gardener friend, a mother with a green thumb, a husband or wife who is a lover of flowers, or perhaps, just for your own enjoyment.

Title: ‘Spring Breeze’
Size: 7"h x 5"w
Medium: Watercolor on Arches paper

Artist Insight:
I love the contrast between the sharp-in-focus flower in the foreground, and the soft, out-of-focus atmospheric blossoms and foliage in the background. A carefully planned and executed painting is not unlike carefully orchestrated theater, with center characters and supporting roles. By deliberately painting objects to a different degree of sharpness, competition for viewers attention from different sector of the painting is cleverly avoided, and the entire painting flows more smoothly in terms of rhythm without too much distraction of “noise”. The viewer’s eye is thus lead onto a journey of smoothly blended restful moments and intense discovery and visual stimulation.

Thank you so much for looking at my art. :-)

Once upon a time, I was a science major and obtained a Ph.D. in Physics in 2008 from Purdue University. However, alongside science I have always had a passion for art. Eventually, the calling to art has led me to take the scary big leap, leaving my technical job and joining a full time Atelier program studying classical drawing and painting methods following the 19th-century French academic lineage in the Golden Gate Atelier in San Francisco.
