The Poppy Field

'The Poppy Field' 8x10 pastel
This is one of the paintings I did at the Duane Wakeham workshop. One of the things he stressed to me was that I was really painting a portrait of flowers in a landscape and not really a landscape so the trees in the background needed to be just shapes with no detail. I also need to rememebr to create a feeling of air around my flowers....so that the viewer can feel like they can
reach around them. Good tips for me to remember. But he did like the painting and thought that my flowers were beautifully rendered which was so nice to hear!
