Today's painting is from my head. It didn't start out as a poppy painting....far from it. It went through so many revisions I lost track. This piece of Wallis paper really held it's own. I started out trying to paint a forest scene. It was all greens so I did a complementary color underpainting. I wasn't happy with how it was going and I brushed it out completely twice, I also tried fixing the bottom layer...still hated it. I brushed it out once again and decided to make it a field of tulips....no luck with that one either. I don't like to waste a good piece of paper or give up on a painting so the poppies came to life. I still have to figure out a way to try the forest again!
