‘Dapple Shaded Poppies’
It would seem my oil paints and brushes have finally had their dust blown off of them :-)! Two days ago, after clearing and cleaning, like a possessed mad woman, my fabric workspace was eventually reverted back into a painting studio. Rummaging around, I found a dozen oil canvas panels, earmarked for a project a while back, so, I thought instead of that, I would get my rusty painting arm going again on the little 14 x 11 inch boards.
Nature and my garden provided just the right inspiration…nestled right at the foot of our Holly tree! With a little help from the sun through the leaves, in the dappled shade, I captured the pretty scene on camera, four wild orange Poppies in amongst the holly leaves.
Now I have to think what can go on the other eleven canvases ??? 😉
My garden poppies made the perfect reason, to get back to oil painting! I had a little request from Mrs. P’s grandson over at craftodessey to show my picture of orange poppies – as he has only ever seen the beautiful red ones – so here they are finished! A couple of weeks should see the oils dry out too, and then, I think it may be destined for My Etsy shop 😉 Better get back out into the garden and see what other treasures I can capture !
