What I Saw And What I Made

What a magnificent field of poppies! It is a good thing we have digital cameras - otherwise we would have needed rolls and rolls of film. Here is one of the photos I took before heading back to to studio to paint. Several of the images were viewed on my ipad and we discussed the good and bad design points of each before I composed the design for the painting. Most of the work was done alla prima with just a few defining edges completed when the piece had dried. 

This is what I saw

This is what I made
