I have painted many poppies over the years - some in watercolour and acrylic. I love painting them and always find a similar thing happens.
I start out with a regimented design in mind - BUT somewhere through the process the poppies take control and start their dance.
This is how I started my most recent poppy painting. I did my drawing - carefully laying out all my shapes, thinking about the design. I slowly started colouring in some of the shapes.
Here is the result...14 x 18", acrylic on canvas - looking for a title.
Till Next Time ...
