I have always wanted to paint a poppy field and have finally been able to settle down long enough to get a feel for how to paint poppies in a distance and a few stems up close.
Another first – Poppy Field, #1 is an oil pastel (8×10) painted on an artist canvas board that was prepared with clear gesso. An underpainting done in watercolor was first completed to give me a feel for the different forms and colors. Mostly used Senneliers, Holbeins and Neopastels.
