POPPIES AND DAISIES

I've had several paintings on the go for a few days. I paint a bit on each and leave them to dry. The next day I take each one in turn and decide how to progress. Yesterday I had time to finish several.

This and tomorrow's painting are both on prepared wood panels which I chose because of the smoothness of the surface. Acrylic paint tends to dry quickly on a panel so it gives the painting a more spontaneous painterly look.

P.S. - I laughed when I saw Karen Margulis' blog post today because she also had a poppy experience and gave directions how she paints her pastel poppies. I love her work and her blog is on the list on the right of my blog page if you want to check it out.

P.P.S. - I really enjoy connecting with readers of my blog, so if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi, leave me a comment.
