Five Poppies, 10118, daily painter original © Carol Nelson Fine Art
I've been working on this large (36x24) poppy painting while I've been doing the dog paintings. These poppies are based on the iceland poppies growing right now in my garden. Their glorious colors just scream "paint me" every morning.
I collaged some Japanese art paper in the large section on the left. The paper has little threads of silver that catch your eye.
The petals are heavily textured for a 3D effect. The other sections are painted with copper, bronze and gold metallic paints that have a soft glow. Most of these subtle metallic passages are not picked up by the camera.
