European Poppies, completed
September 15, 2010
Here it is, the painting of poppies, completed. This painting really came together with the more poppy buds/pods I added. The composition is the contrast of those large, orangey-red blossoms, and the texture of the multiple buds. I didn’t want any background I might have put in at the end point to detract from that focus on those elements. I like that the white paper of the background allows the colors and shapes to pop.
