Lovely Poppies

Hello, Poppies are my favorite flower to paint, well I think so anyway. Well today anyway, lol This is the Golden Fluid acrylics on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. Played around with a kind of abstract background first and then laid in the poppies. I added those brighter highlights at the end focusing on just a few. Please take time to enlarge the photo by clicking on it, the colors are brighter and truer to life. Tomorrow night is Second Saturday at Gallery 42 in Mason Ohio. I will be there, if you are in the area stop by. Hours are 5-9. I have several paintings exhibited there, excited to join a wonderful group of fine artists. Have a wonderful day friends.

I did look at the larger version and really think this is so lovely! The reds/oranges with the yellow dashed in is rich and beautifully done! the poppies are alive with movement!

If I lived near the gallery, I would definitely drop by. Congratulations on the exhibit and best of luck.

These poppies are really lovely. You know how I love to paint with red. You use it so well. The gazebo in previous post is nice, too. Plein air can sure be a buggy affair! Take care...
