The poppies here in Colorado are about a foot high. It will still be 3-4 weeks before we see blooms. I can't wait for the annual display.
This painting is a fix of one I did a couple years ago. It always had good composition, but I felt I had to pump up the colors.
That meant I had to paint the poppies WHITE before I could paint them orange tones. You'll never be able achieve bright luminous color in acrylic, especially with the transparent fluid acrylics I use, if you start with a dark background.
