'Red Poppies' 10x8 pastel
I had a request for a work in progress (thanks Karen!) so I thought I would put it in a slideshow which is posted below. You can click on 'see images' for a closer look at any of the photos. This is painted on Uart paper 500 grit which I toned with a pink nupastel. I sketched in the main areas with a peach nupastel then began painting the distant treeline and the sky. I wanted to leave these trees and the distand field less detailed and lighter and cooler in color so the poppies in the foreground would be the stars.
