Dutch Damsels #17

These tulips are painted on a new surface. I love trying out new surfaces and new brands of paint. Gives a great excitement, which I am sure all artists will agree with. This one is a type of wooden panel, called Chirico. I was quite disappointed with the surface, don't like it much. I bought 20 pieces to try out, and am glad I've exhausted them.:) I did not like how the surface grabbed the paint, it was kind of plasticky in nature. Anyway! Hope to get back to my favorite surface, i.e hardboard.
