Poppies in Vase
I finished this in my class this week. I posted the start of this painting last week. I'm happy with the way it turned out. The colors are even more intense than they show in this photo.
I wanted to keep it loose (for me). My fear was that I would work and work on it until I lost that feeling of spontaneity. It is so hard for me not to get bogged down in details. That's why I always make myself paint with a large brush, even in the small daily paintings. I painted this primarily with a number 8 filbert.
This is a 12 " by 16 " oil on stretched canvas.
