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.
This is a painting I did several weeks ago to match another I had done for my sister.
This is a 16 x 20 inch still life oil painting of red poppies. When I was just about finished, my new knives came! Next time.
