Playing with painting knives and canvas that is too fat for my easel. I do love sunflowers.
I’ve never painted yellow poppies and felt I needed to. I like it! This is an 18 x 24 inch palette knife oil painting.
I have been busy this week making poppy fields! This will be the last one for the week…or should be because I got stuff to do! This was the poppy painting that got me hooked on yellow ochre skies for a few paintings. Happy Wednesday everybody!
More poppies from this week while on the yellow ochre sky kick.
I discovered cadmium orange a few weeks ago. I hate to admit that I can’t mix an orange as pure as cad orange out of the tube. It is such a happy color! I like to keep my colors to a minimum (I usually have about 10 colors I work from), but lately I’m thinking cad orange and cerulean blue need to be part of my palette.
I was looking at pictures of paintings I have thrown away. Kicking myself.
This is a 24 x 24 Inch Oil Painting. I have the Sunflowers blooming in the back yard but waiting on the Cosmos. The Holly Hocks are on their last legs.
