Finally Finished Poppies

The poppies are finally finished. I am pretty happy with the way they turned out but as usual there are a few things that I wish I could have done better. I may tweak it here and there in a while, when I can look at it with fresh eyes. It's hard to tell what it needs when I have been staring at it for a long time.

Two things I learned while painting the poppies:
1: Orange is easy to work with. It lifts quite well.
2: I need to work on my shadows. Hopefully I'll get some more practice with another poppy painting.

Here is the finished painting:


  1. Absolutely beautiful! You and your talent are amazing!

  2. They look perfect to me! Celebrate your accomplishments and your success!

  3. This turned out beautiful! Great job! You have some serious talent!
